Gothic Mine

Gothic Mine

Lower Gwelo District


Gothic Mine is named after Gothic Farm about half a mile from the west bank of Gwelo river. The mine was first pegged in 1898 by the Consolidated Exploration and Development (Rhodesia) Co. A period of development followed and by 1902 it was decided that sufficient work had to amalgamate with the adjoining Pagamesa Claims.

Milling ceased at Gothic Mine in 1910 and a development option was taken on the property by Mashonaland Agency Ltd.

Around 1978/79 the mine was reopened by a South African industrial development corporation.
