Brits is located in the North West Province, South Africa. Brits is a large town situated in a fertile, citrus, vegetable and grain-producing area that is irrigated by the waters of the Hartbeespoort Dam. Brits is situated close to Pretoria, en route to Rustenburg. Brits was founded in 1924 on a farm owned by Gert Brits. Today it is a modern, developing town surrounded by fragrant citrus groves. The town plays an important role in the South African mining industry: 94% of South Africa's platinum comes from the Rustenburg and Brits districts, which together produce more platinum than any other single area in the world. In addition, there is a large vanadium mine in the district. Brits is linked to Sandton by the R511 and to Randburg by the R512, and to Pretoria by the R513 and the R514.
