13th International platinum symposium

The 13th International platinum symposium will take place in Saturday 30th June 2018 – Friday 6th July  Ranch Hotel, Polokwane, South Africa
 
The symposium will differ from previous international Platinum Symposia as visits to various sites on the Platreef will be undertaken during the week and will be included in the cost of the conference. Morning visits will be to exploration camps and field traverses of choice. It is hoped to visit the Anglo Platinum open-cast operations although permission for these visits can only be given in January 2018. Conference presentations and poster session will continue each afternoon and early evening. The conference will close at lunchtime on Friday July 6th in time for delegates to get to OR Tambo airport for evening international flights.
 
The programme will include a session on PGM mineralogy dedicated to the memory of Hazel Prichard. A bursary will be given to one selected female student to attend as a tribute to Hazel based on abstract submission. A special issue of Mineralogical Magazine will also feature papers on platinum mineralogy dedicated to Hazel Prichard.
