Boyd Ramsey completes South Africa tour

Boyd made a series of visits on South Africa recently visiting engineering and mining firms including Jones and Wagener, Golder, Exxaro and others. The tour included a presentation for the South African IGS chapter, GIGSA and the presentation of a paper at the 17th African Regional Conference of the ISSMGE, and IGS Council meeting was also on the agenda. One of the focuses of the tour was geosynthetic installation quality control – several firms in South Africa are leading the charge to advance the geosynthetics industry with the use of digital QC records. Boyd will return to South Africa in November 2019.
