I stumbled across this nice write-up of the workshop today.

An excerpt:

South Africa as the world’s leading producer of platinum, diamond and other materials essential for modern technology, has developed great scientific expertise in producing new materials made from carbon and other elements that comparable in strength to diamonds. There is now great potential for scientists all over Africa to apply this knowledge to develop Africa’s vast mineral wealth.

I think this would make a fascinating discussion-starter on the forum....
