Carletonville was originally an unplanned settlement established between 1937 and 1957 as various companies developed their gold-mining claims. In 1959 it was officially designated a town, being named for Guy Carleton Jones, a local mining director. By 1979 Western Deep Levels Ltd. operated the world’s deepest gold mine (extending to 12,392 feet [3,777 metres] below the Earth’s surface) in the locality.
