:: UCT's Centre for Mineral Research holds a Student Research Day

The Centre held its first research day of 2010 at the Belmont Square Conference Centre on 18 March. The event showcased eight of the 18 CMR postgraduate students' research. Master's student Sabatha Mhlanga, who also organised the day, walked away with the best presentation prize for his work on relative adsorption of polymeric depressants on pure minerals. Professor Eric Forssberg, who had been a Visiting Professor in the CMR for two weeks, presented Sabatha with the prize.

Professor J-P Franzidis, CMR's deputy director of research management and director of Minerals to Metals, concluded the day's proceedings by commending the students for the consistency and thoughtfulness of their presentations. He also pointed to the poor ratio between Master's and PhD students in the Centre. "Most of, if not all, the presentations we saw here today were by Master's students. We definitely need more PhD students."

A second research day is planned for 28 October. This is the first year that the CMR holds two research days.
