Established in 1985, Peacocke & Simpson has vast experience in the minerals processing industry, providing RELEVANT and MEANINGFUL mineral testwork on nearly all hydrometallurgical processes for nearly all minerals. Based in mineral-rich yet underdeveloped and logistically challenging Africa, we understand that our clients require practical solutions and results, as opposed to laboratory print-outs and irrelevant research.

Our Clients

DRA appreciates the generous expertise of Pete Simpson of P&S in gravity gold concentration and leach extraction and his valued commissioning contribution towards achieving first gold on these projects.

Glenn Bezuidenhout, Process Director, DRA Global

During a unique, short-term high grade period we produced 3,000 oz. of gold in a 24hr operating shift from three XD 48 Knelson Concentrators. They are worth their weight in gold.

Marnu Lombaard, Metallurgical Engineer, AngloGold

We have been proudly associated with Peacocke & Simpson since 1987. Over the years, they have successfully developed and executed many of the most advanced and metallurgically challenging gravity-based test programs on behalf of their clients. There is no doubt that many of these clients have realized significant positive financial benefits as a result of their practical and innovative approach.

Doug Corsan, Vice-President, Knelson Concentrators

Thanks to P&S for a job well done on the Singida metallurgical testwork program. Shanta can now move forward on the BFS with a great deal of confidence, knowing that the gravity and leach test work have been completed in both a comprehensive and professional manner.

Wally Channon, Technical Manager, Shanta Gold

Mr Pete Simpson was assigned by Consep for the final stage of our Acacia Reactor CS250 installation and commissioning. With him by our side, everything went smooth and easy, not only does he know his thing but he has a great facility to transmit his knowledge. After the commissioning, he was available to give us advice, always with a smile. We sure will use the services of P&S in the future, they already did our EGRG tests in 2014 which led to this Knelson/Acacia installation… Many thanks Pete!
