The opening of the De Hoop Dam will change the lives of thousands of people in this Limpopo region, both economically and socially. The water from the dam will be piped to the mines in the region, allowing them to explore ever deeper to further unlock the rich platinum and chrome reserves. This in turn will bring a renewed prosperity to the town of Steelpoort and already a score of new retail outlets and housing developments are opening in the town – a sure sign of economic growth. 

A new hope for industry and the community – thanks to the now 13th biggest dam ever built in South Africa.
