It is with deep sadness that I must inform you that Dr Martin Pretorius, one of our well-known rock engineering colleagues and a former SANIRE president, has lost his battle with cancer. Martin passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning, 29 November 2009. Martin’s career spanned a long period with Gencor, as well as subsequent periods with Goldfields, SRK and Harmony. Many of us will remember Martin for his quick thinking, his willingness to share his knowledge and his positive optimistic attitude to life.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.
