Principal Consultant-Battery Metals, Michael Cronwright will present at the Clean and Green Day 2021 held by the Geological Society of South Africa on Friday 16 April 2021 on ‘Lithium deposits of Africa and what is driving the market.’
The world is attempting to shift towards more sustainable sources of energy to power our ever-growing world of technology. At the same time, the mining industry is constantly under pressure to reduce its impact on the environment, along with any further damage in the years that follow the closure of a project.
This one-day online event aims to give you insights into the cleaner, greener renewable energy sources available, as well as the innovative technologies being implemented by well-established mines to reduce environmental impact.
The short course is aimed at geologists, environmentalists, engineers and researchers, as well as anyone background knowledge and understanding on the fundamentals of renewable energy and cleaner mining.
The event commences at 7.30am to 5pm.
CPD Points – 8 GSSA and 1 SACNASP
Registration Fees: Member – R1000 | Non-Member- R1500 | Student/Retired
