In August 1887, the pair were on their way to the Eastern Transvaal when they outspanned (rested their pack animals) on the farm Elandsfontein and decided to stay and buy the land.: 285 Both men made fortunes and the town sprang up 2 km from the Simmer and Jack mine named after Jack's fathers farm.: 285 In 1921, the world's largest gold refinery, the Rand Refinery, was established at Germiston. Seventy percent of the western world's gold passes through this refinery.
