In 1968 Kloof Gold Mine officially opened. In 2000 Kloof amalgamated with Venterspost, Libanon, and Leeudoorn gold mines. Prior to the amalgamation, the Kloof Gold Mine operated as a separate entity and was granted a lease to mine down-dip of the Libanon mine at depths between 2.5 and 3.7 km.
The mine is owned and operated by Sibanye Gold (subsidiary of Gold Fields Limited). It forms the western part of the Kloof–Driefontein Complex (KDC).
