Student Flotation Research Day, Cape Town

The Centre for Minerals Research at the University of Cape Town (UCT) is planning to hold a Student Flotation Research Day on Friday 18 November, immediately following  Flotation 11.
The University of Cape Town
The intended venue is the Chemical Engineering Department at UCT, just a few minutes from the Vineyard Hotel, where Flotation 11 will be held. This follows similar Student Research Days held after Flotation 2000 in Adelaide, and before the XXVth IMPC in Cape Town in 2003.

Any student who wishes to participate must bring a poster, which could (but need not) be their poster at Flotation 11. This will be an opportunity for students to meet each other in a smaller group to discuss their work: every student will have a chance to present their own work and receive feedback.

Students (and supervisors) wishing to attend should please contact Ms Gaynor Yorath at, with the topic of the poster. Early registration would be appreciated. Registration is free – the only requirement is active participation! If there is sufficient interest, a coach tour around the Cape can be arranged on Saturday 19 November, to see the beautiful scenery and visit the winelands. There would need to be a charge for this, to cover the coach and the lunch. Please indicate in your email if you would like to do this.

  1. This is a great opportunity for those students who will not be able to present their work at the Flotation 11 conference, but who will be in Cape Town on the 18th November, to present their Research to date at UCT with fellow students from around the world.
