7th International Platinum Conference

‘Platinum— A Changing Industry

In Association with AMI Precious Metals 2017

18–19 October 2017 — Conference
20 October — Technical Tours

The 7th International Platinum Conference is to be held in Polokwane, Limpopo, South Africa in October 2017.

The Platinum conference series has covered a range of themes since inception in 2004, and traditionally addresses the opportunities and challenges facing the platinum Industry.

This prestigious event attracts key role players and industry leaders through:

  • High quality technical papers and presentations
  • Facilitating industry networking
  • Having large, knowledgeable audiences
  • Global participation, and
  • Comprehensive support from industry role players.

The Platinum 2017 Conference will be held in association with the Precious Metals Development Network (PMDN) of the DST’s Advanced Metals initiative (AMI Conference 2017)

The AMI conference presents a forum where scientists and technologists can come together to learn and discuss the latest advances in precious metals (platinum group metals and gold) science and technology.

The 2017 event will, under the guidance of the organising committee, structure a programme which covers critical aspects of this continually evolving and exciting industry.

However the success and relevance of this event to the industry really depends on your participation and support. You can participate in this event as an organising committee member, author/presenter, delegate or sponsor.

We look forward to your support and engagement in the 7th International Platinum Conference.

Thank you.

Dr Gordon Smith.
