The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has been organizing and presenting the annual Student Colloquium since 2002, to afford the best final-year mining and metallurgical students an opportunity to present their final year projects to an audience of mining and metallurgical industry experts.

These students are our future young professionals and will be fundamentally affected by how the industry operates. We have to support and assist our future young professionals! As Nelson Mandela observed: ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’.

The SAIMM cordially invites our experts in the field to meet the fine calibre of young professionals who are about to embark on their careers in industry. There are 11 mining and 11 metallurgical presentations planned for the event, to be held at Johannesburg on 16 October 2019 . The top five in each discipline will have the opportunity to be published in the prestigious SAIMM Journal in April 2020. The presentations selected will be required to be submitted in the form of draft papers before 8 October 2019.

Our strategy is: To contribute to the nurturing of prosperous and empowered young professionals.
