The compounds were built in 1908 to house migrant workers and are one of the few compounds of significance remaining in the county. They used to house up to 15 000 workers from all over Southern Africa and are a part of South African history that has largely been forgotten. Many of the structures have been neglected and some are at risk of falling into the open pit.
