Vereeniging, with the meaning of joining (uniting), is located at the rail and road crossing point between the two old republics: Zuid-Afrikaansche Republic and the Republic of the Orange Free State.
In the late 1800s the Vaal River was crossed at Viljoensdrift, on the Free State side of the present Vereeniging. In 1878 coal was dicovered on the farm Leeuwkuil and a town developed around the mine on the northern bank of the Vaal River. The first stands were sold in 1892 and the railway track crossing the Vaal River was also completed that year.
It is one of the busiest industrial areas. The town is one of the most important industrial centres in South Africa and cables, chains, steel tubing, farm implements and many other products are manufactured here.
Coal reserves have been estimated at as much as 4 billion tons and substantial deposits of fire-clay, silica and building stone are also mined.
