Time for some rugby! Can't say that I understand the game much, but there's nothing I love more than watching grown men run after a ball😂😂😂#rugbymatch 🇿🇦 #southafrica #johannesburg #lifeasanexchangestudent #witwatersrand #oneinacrowd #nightout #exchangestudent #rugby #joburg #nightout #groupselfie #crowdgoeswild #travelblogger #personalblog #filmmakerlife #filmstudents

My fellow #Reenector MC Heunis potraying a Prospector, Eastern Transvaal goldfields, mid 1880s. Many flocked to South Africa from all over the globe. Many walked from Lorenco Marques in Mozambique to the Eastern Transvaal though lion, malaria, tsetse fly and hostile tribe territory. They died like flies. Those that made it often lived like rats to scratch out a living in the meager gold reserves of the ZAR Lowveld. Legends were made in those days of hard working, hard drinking and tough living men. Names like Jock of the Bushveld, Pilgrims' Rest and Baberton became world famous. Some became filthy rich, but the majority just suffered. A few years later many would immigrate to a new promising gold field on a Witwatersrand farm called Langlaagte, south of Pretoria... #Reenactor #reenacment #SAHistory #Discovery #Gold #Johannesburg #witwatersrand #ZAR #Transvaal #History

LES MINES D’OR DANS LE MONDE
Le Witwatersrand Basin en Afrique du Sud, le Super Pit australien et le Carlin Trend du Nevada… Les ressources de ces légendaires mines d’or s’amenuisent d’année en année. Et de manière générale, les champs aurifères ne sont plus aussi nombreux dans le monde qu’ils ont pu l’être par le passé.
Le prix actuel de l’or, proche du seuil des 35 000€ le kilogramme, pourrait continuer à augmenter du fait d’une demande supérieure à l’offre.
Depuis les années 1970, on découvrait en moyenne un énorme gisement d’or (50 millions d’onces minimum) tous les dix ans, une bonne dizaine de champs aurifères de taille intermédiaire (30 millions d’onces minimum) et pléthore de dépôts de taille plus modeste. Au regard de ces chiffres, les découvertes de gisements de ces 10 dernières années font pâle figure: aucun gisement de plus de 15 millions d’onces n’a été mis au jour.

Comment remplacer les principaux gisements d’or de ces 130 dernières années? Il faudrait pour cela que les sociétés minières cessent de réduire leurs investissements dédiés à l’exploration, comme elles le font depuis 2013. D’autant plus qu’il faut compter une période assez longue entre la découverte d’un champ aurifère et sa mise en exploitation: sept ans en moyenne!
Capteurs plus puissants, machines capables de creuser plus profond dans des lieux difficiles d’accès, nouvelles méthodes de fracturation… La solution passe sans doute par l’innovation technologique.

Healthy dessert , fruit platter after a meal. So nice to meet up with my friend and long term colleague from Johannesburg Dr Norman Cahi. We trained together at Wits University Dental School

Nearly half of the gold ever mined in the world have come from one place : Witwatersrand South Africa.
Racial Segregation in South Africa began in colonial times under the Dutch Empire, to then the British and became the official policy in 1948, lasting until 1991.
South Africa is one of the few in Africa never to have had a coup d'etat and regular elections have been held.

More than 1,000 white farmers have been killed in South Africa since 1990.

Thank you God for getting me this far!



Architecture certainly wasn't easy but I am so grateful that you have crowned my efforts with success👸👑 May the wonderful plans that you have for my life be accomplished in Jesus' name! This is just the beginning...🎓🎓

Fellow comrades, thank you! #Witwatersrand #biokineticshonours2017

My colleague found these beauties underground today. Quite a rare sight as cavities are not very common in placer deposits at such great depth. #quartz #quartzcrystals #geology #mining #witwatersrand

To end the week of #FacesofPhotonics with Isaac, he is sharing one piece of advice for the broader STEM community: 💬
“The next Nobel Prize winner or Elon Musk may be amongst the crowds we share the wonders of work with. Importantly, we must give back to the community so we may inspire the next generation.”
💬
Thank you for sharing your story with us, Isaac! Stay tuned for next week, when we feature SPIE student from Calcutta University, Ria Talukder.

Why does our #FacesofPhotonics star, Isaac Nape, make time to volunteer? "There is an urgent need to make society aware of the beauty of optics and photonics: the way it has revolutionized communication, the way we harvest energy, light up our rooms, store information... everything. The only way to improve and further develop this field is to keep everyone excited about it!" #optics #photonics #volunteer #outreach #volunteering #beautiful #science #stem #communication #scicomm #tech4good #story #community #aroundtheworld #southafrica #witwatersrand #africa #light #technology #tech

This time on #FacesofPhotonics, we are hearing Isaac’s most memorable moment in his time with SPIE:
💬
“SPIE hosted my first international conference (Optics and Photonics 2017) in America (San Diego). The entire conference was memorable. Meeting so many people, exchanging ideas and interacting with people of differing backgrounds (race, culture and ethnicity), all with a common goal of growing the awareness of optics and photonics and making an impact in their respective countries with their research made me feel part of something much bigger than myself.”
