Magodi area

Magodi area

Mbusi mine: Near Magodi village in the middle of Mr. Mbusi's farm a pegmatite was discovered and a couple of small pits were dug by Mr. Mbusi himself. Aquamarine and beautiful quartz crystals with black tourmaline needles inside were discovered.

Sangos mine: The Sangos garnet mine lies among a number of other mines along the ~2km long crest of a smooth hill. The metamorphic rock contains several narrow horizons with lenses of garnet in which gem quality red garnet are being found. Several large pits testify of intensive mining. The remote area lies in the middle of beautiful primary woodland.
