Excerpt from The South African Mining Journal and Engineering Record, Vol. 27: Saturday, June 1, 1918 Full reports of the important batch of mining company meetings held during the week, will be found in this issue. Regarding the result of the Wit. Deep meeting, the legality of which may be tested in the law courts, perhaps the less said at this juncture the better.
