BoksburgBoksburg is a city located on the East Rand of Gauteng Province in South Africa, and was originally named after the State Secretary of the South African Republic, W. Eduard Bok. Since December 2000 Boksburg has formed part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality.
Gold was first discovered in Boksburg in 1887, and as a result Boksburg became a mining town. The Main Reef Road linked Boksburg to all the other major mining towns and in 1890 a railway was built connecting it to Johannesburg.
Boksburg's economy relies heavily on its industrial and mining sector and has become one of the Witwaterstrand's most important gold-producing towns.
The city also boasts one of the largest shopping malls in Gauteng, the East Rand Mall, which consists of all the major chain stores like Pick n Pay, Edgars and Woolworths, as well as nine cinemas and many restaurants and coffee shops.
