Diamond is a rare, naturally-occurring mineral composed of carbon. Each carbon atom in a diamond is surrounded by four other carbon atoms and connected to them by strong covalent bonds - the strongest type of chemical bond. This simple, uniform, tightly-bonded arrangement yields one of the most durable and versatile substances known. Diamond is the hardest known natural substance. It is also chemically resistant and has the highest thermal conductivity of any natural material

Day 1 of the Mine Design course commenced today at the university of Pretoria. During our regular visit to the Virtual Reality centre at the mining department, we were joined by future mining engineers of our country as the department had its open day to grade 9, 10 & 11 pupils. It sure seemed that the technology in mining that was showcased did its job in keeping the youth interested and excited. Well done to the Tuks team!
