It is with sadness that I must inform you of the recent passing of one of our former colleagues, Dan Cloete.

 A geologist by training, Dan worked for Anglo Vaal for most of his mining career.

 In rock engineering, Dan will be remembered for his contribution to the success of cave mining at Hartebeesfontein Gold Mine.

 As a geologist, his exploration efforts lead to the identification and delineation of the Target/Sun deposit in the Free State, now Target Mine.
