For the second year running, a student from the University of Stellenbosch was the recipient of the annual MEI award, for the best poster presented at the SAIMM Western Cape Branch annual conference, Mineral Processing '07, held at the Vineyard Hotel, Cape Town in August.
The prize allows the winner to attend an MEI Conference anywhere in the world.
