Prize for geology graduate

Posted on February 20, 2013

The prize was awarded by Venmyn Deloitte MD Andy Clay at a ceremony at Willemse Hall, at the Department of Geology. ‘It is encouraging when students begin to appreciate the contents of the course, which links technical, valuation and compliance issues,’ says Clay.

Kgarume was one of the approximately 30 students who participated in the course, which was also attended by external delegates.

He is most interested in coal geology, having completed his honours research report on the effect of weathering on coal qualities and properties. He found no relationship between the hammer test and calorific value, ash content, volatiles and moisture content in coal. He is considering starting an MSc in geology this year.
