Beschreibung

Penhalonga is a village in the province of Manicaland, Zimbabwe located 18 km north of Mutare in a valley where the Sambi and Imbeza Rivers meet the Mutare River. According to the 1982 Population Census, the village had a population of 4,477. Ancient gold workings have been found in the area. In 1895 the Penhalonga Mine opened and the village grew around the gold mine. The name is derived from the Portuguese words pena meaning 'rocky mountain' and longa meaning long. The mine closed in 1943 and in 1899 a new gold mine, Rezende Mine opened. Bauxite clay, which is also mined in the area, supplies most of Zimbabwe's pottery industry. The village is the residential and commercial centre for the mine and the surrounding area of forestry, dairy and mixed farming.
