KiDs in Cape Town

The KiDs group was represented at the 35th International Geological Congress (IGC) by two keynote presentations from David Phillips (“Ultra-high precision 40Ar/39Ar geochronology of volcanic rocks, using an ARGUSVI multi-collector mass spectrometer”) and Andrea Giuliani (“Trace element variations across olivine record the evolution of kimberlite melts: Case studies from the Kimberley kimberlites (South Africa)”).

While in Cape Town they also visited John Gurney’s diamond and mantle rock collection hosted at Mineral Services.
