Bushveld PGE Day

May 14 - May 15



One of the oldest artifacts containing platinum was the Casket of Thebes in Egypt, dating to the 7th century BC.  In South Africa, the first platinum nuggets were discovered in streams in 1924. The great Hans Merensky was a pioneer in crowdsourcing when he appealed to friends and family to raise funds to explore platinum deposits. And in South African, it just got better, with our platinum mines having produced more than 75% of the world’s output.

Currently, the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex is where it’s happening and is one of the world’s most exciting minerals targets. But interesting prospects are also emerging from the rest of the Bushveld Complex.

Join the GSSA for a Bushveld PGE Workshop in Limpopo where we explore the latest research and development by academia and industry leaders such as Professor Judith Kinnaird and Dr Ian Basson.  Day 2 will comprise mine visits to projects in the northern limb… see more.
