About Us

Savana Mining Equipment was first established in 1972 as JW Enterprises, focusing primarily on precision machined components for the mining and mineral processing industries.

By 1972, demand of our components soon expanded to incorporate full engineering and manufacturing of mineral recovery machinery. With a series of strategic alliances formed, Savana offers a diversified range of products and services including personalized engineering design, plant installation and mine management services. This, coupled with our Mine Support Program, affords our clients a diverse base from which to choose the products and services that best meet their needs.

After 40 years, Savana still focuses on providing engineered solutions and equipment for the mining and mineral processing industries. Savana Mining will continue to provide a competitive range of innovative niche technologies, process engineering services, and complete mineral processing plants to our customers.

Savana Mining works with governments, companies and NGO’s to reduce poverty and boost prosperity by supporting sustainable development of communities involved in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in developing countries.

Capabilites

Design & Drafting

Plant components are created using the most recent versions of Autodesk Inventor, Pro-E and Solidworks. These tools give Savana the capability to produce plant layouts in final position and color. Client input is important, and while standard designs are already placed on the layout, modifications can be made to meet the client’s individual needs.

Every certified vendor drawing provided by suppliers is redrawn in 3D prior to being implemented into a plant layout. This ensures total accuracy of all designs produced. 2D fabrication drawings are created from 3D models to reduce the likeliness for errors that can form from drawings that are not to scale.

Savana personnel are constantly moving to stay on top of resource improvements while maintaining high office standards. By always searching for the most recently released materials found within the marketplace, Savana combines value and client service.
