On 20 September 2018, Marius van Niekerk and Marcia van Aswegen visited the Bushveld Branch of the Geological Society of South Africa in Rustenburg.
Sponsored by Datamine SABLE®, the Alex du Toit Memorial lecture was led by Professor Lewis Ashwal of the University of The Witwaterstrand.
The informative event was a laid back affair attended by Geologists from Bushveld Platinum and Chrome Mines in the Western Limb of the Geology Society.
"Professor Ashwal's talk was informative and funny," stated van Niekerk, who also enjoyed a trip down memory lane as Ashwal was his first year Professor when he started studying Geology.
Van Niekerk additionally shared some of Datamine’s software solutions during the event to the geologist’s present.
Check out some pictures from the evening below and the great video featuring Professor Ashwal and his brilliant discovery of a lost continent under lava in Mauritius.
