First Student Research Day 2011
The CMR held its first bi-annual Student Research Day of 2011 on the 3rd of May at the Old Mutual House (Constantia, Cape Town). The day featured four sessions of presentations, each opened by keynote presenters from a wide variety of disciplines linking to mineral processing research. Postgraduate students from the CMR were provided the opportunity to present their research topics and obtain peer reviews of their work from members of the centre as well as invited visitors from academia and industry.
The guests of honour at the event were Prof. Sandy Lambert, Dr. Stephen Neethling and Dr. Jochen Petersen. At the conclusion of the event, prizes were awarded for the best full length and shortened student presentations. These were awarded to Marius Hromnik and Matthias Brodner respectively.
