:: Major IMPC Awards to Two Distinguished American Professors


The awards were announced at the IMPC Gala Dinner in Moscow.

The 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award winner is Prof. Jan Miller of the University of Utah. Prof. Miller is the Ivor D. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Utah. He received his BS degree from Pennsylvania State University, and his MS and PhD degrees from the Colorado School of Mines. At the University of Utah Professor Miller has devoted over 40 years to undergraduate and graduate education. His research covers mainly the areas of mineral processing and hydrometallurgy, specializing in particle characterization, aqueous solution chemistry, and colloid and surface chemistry. He is a member of SME, TMS, and ACS. The recipient of numerous honours and awards, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1993. In recent years Jan has become a world leader in the field of x-ray tomography in minerals processing, and presented keynote lectures on this subject at MEI's Process Mineralogy '12 and Process Mineralogy '17 in Cape Town.

Prof. Douglas Fuerstenau has added the IMPC's Distinguished Service Award to his long list of prestigious awards- he was the first recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award in San Francisco in 1995. The IMPC awards are just two of very many awards that he has received during his illustrious career.
