It is located close to the town of Arandis 70 kilometres inland from the coastal town of Swakopmund in the Namib Desert in the Erongo Region in Namibia. Walvis Bay, Namibia’s only deepwater harbour is 30 kilometres south of Swakopmund." [1]


"The company’s long serving and highly respected Chairman, Charles Kauraisa, retired towards the end of 2007. He served the company for over 25 years, 12 of which were as Chairman. Rehabeam Hoveka took over the role from 1 April 2008.

"Sadly, 2007 saw the loss of another valuable long-serving member of the Board, John Kirkpatrick, who passed away. He served on the Rössing Board for nearly 30 years." [2]
