About Orkney

Orkney is a gold mining town that lies on the banks of the Vaal River and falls under the local municipality of Matlosana.

Orkney History

Orkney was named after the Orkney Isles off the coast of Scotland. The streets are named after English authors and poets, which was quite unique at the time. It is believed that the name also has a skit on ‘ook nie’ which means also not (neither farm nor town). More history to follow in due course.
