Mining Review Africa

The November 2017 issue of Mining Review Africa has a special feature on “The Southern African Coal Processing Society (SACPS), an organisation committed to ensuring the evolution and advancement of coal processing technologies through education, is preparing to celebrate its 50 year anniversary. In honour of this phenomenal achievement, LAURA CORNISH presents an account of the very first years it was started, the major milestones achieved and some of the special memories worth noting thanks to some of the ‘memoirs’ of founding member Professor DAVID HORSFALL”.

COVID-19 Communique

Dear Member of the SACPS

We are in the midst of an unprecedented crisis with COVID-19 (coronavirus). It started as a health crisis, within days became a real economic crisis, and is now on a swift path to becoming a massive fiscal challenge, as well.

The SACPS has considered its members health, in line with National Government and the World Health Organisation. We have postponed all committee and technical meetings and other events that were scheduled up to the end of April 2020. We are in current deliberation with regard to our Annual Dinner scheduled for May 2020. A decision will be taken before the end of March 2020 with regard to our Annual Dinner. We will communicate the outcome of the deliberation to you.

We are also exploring online avenues for our technical sessions, to ensure that our guiding principles of knowledge sharing, exchange of ideas, and education are upheld. We will share more information on this in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or comments, please contact our secretary Gerda at

Remember Crisis does not build courage, it reveals it!

Yours in safety

Devraj Reddy
Chairperson – SACPS
