    HELPING TO DEVELOP SMALL RURAL COMMUNITIES: MINROM is a Geological firm that digs deep to uplift Karoo youth, unearthing potential and cultivating gems.
    “As we welcome the New Year, the spotlight turns to the small Karoo towns of South Africa, where the challenges of rural living are amplified. Spanning four provinces, there are more than one hundred small towns, villages and settlements in the Karoo, a unique landscape that covers almost 40% of South Africa’s land surface. With official systems often struggling to meet the diverse needs of these small-town communities, there arises a crucial opportunity for companies to step up and fill the gap.” Read more in:

    Unearthing Potential and Cultivating Gems

    If you ask Google, you will learn that Karoo is “an arid to semiarid geographic region of Eastern Cape, Western Cape, and Northern Cape provinces, South Africa. The Karoo is best defined by its vegetation, which consists of assorted succulents and low scrub bushes spaced from one foot to several feet apart.” Hmmm… “The Karoo is partly defined by its topography, geology and climate, and above all, its low rainfall, arid air, cloudless skies, and extremes of heat and cold. The Karoo also hosted a well-preserved ecosystem hundreds of million years ago which is now represented by many fossils.”
