The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has been organising and presenting an annual Student Colloquium since 2002, to give the best final year mining and metallurgical students an opportunity to present their final year projects to a mining and metallurgical audience.
Our students today, are our young professionals tomorrow and will have a fundamental impact on the way we work. We have to support and assist our young professionals of the future! ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ - Nelson Mandela
The SAIMM cordially invites our experts in the field to meet the fine calibre of young professionals about to embark on their careers in the industry. There will be 11 mining and 11 metallurgical presentations planned for the day. The top five winners of each discipline will stand a chance to be published in the prestigious SAIMM Journal in April 2019. A draft paper is required for publishing in the Journal when submitting the presentation before 8 October 2018.
Our strategy is the following:
To contribute to the creation of prosperous and empowered young professionals.
