Delmas is a small farming town situated east of Johannesburg in Mpumalanga, South Africa. The town is located some 19 km north-east of Springs and 73 km south-east of Pretoria. The town was laid out in 1907 on the farm Witklip (Afrikaans for White Stone) and has been administered by a town council since 1965. The name is derived from the French de la mas ('small farm') and was given by the Frenchman Frank Campbell Dumat, former owner of Witklip, after his grandfather's farm in France.
