The Western Cape Branch of the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has announced guidelines for the Outotec “Sustainability in the Minerals Industry” prize.
This prize will be given for papers, accompanied by a poster, presented by students registered at a South African tertiary institution at the Branch’s annual conference. The award of prizes will be adjudicated by a panel of judges appointed by the SAIMM, Western Cape Branch, whose decision will be final.
The main consideration for the prize will be the value of the idea (technologically, economically, socially, and environmentally) and its potential to improve sustainability. Credit will be given for the quality, innovation and excellence of the project, design or engineering of the idea.
Thus contributions can come from any level of student as long as the abstract, presentation and poster clearly presents the merit dictated by this criteria.
