Curiosity unveils discovery

Rudzani has a BESMEG Mining and Environmental Geology (University of Venda) and more than seven years of expertise in coal and platinum geological exploration. Constantly in search of the next ‘new’ and the people behind it, Rudzani has learned that coupling his technical geological experience with his creative sales-and-marketing experience makes him adept at problem solving and the human skills necessary to effectively demonstrate the solution thereby coming to appreciate that the creative and the technical elements of any project; geological or otherwise, as two inseparable sides of the same coin bound together by a very often overlooked, yet very crucial human element.
