:: Norman Lotter Awarded the Honour of CIM Distinguished Lecturer 2010/11

Dr. Norman Lotter, of Xstrata Process Support, Canada has been honoured by the CIM as Distinguished Lecturer 2010/11.

CIM Distinguished Lecturers are chosen on the basis of their accomplishments in scientific, technical, management or educational activities related to the minerals industry, and speak at CIM Branch meetings across the country.

Norman was born in South Africa and studied at the universities of Natal and Cape Town for his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He obtained his Ph.D. degree at McGill University in later years. He is a Fellow and Chartered Engineer of the Engineering Council, England, and a Fellow of the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He is licensed as a Professional Engineer in Ontario and South Africa, and has 26 publications. He is a reviewer and adviser to Minerals Engineering journal and an MEI Conferences consultant.

He spent some twenty years of his career in South Africa with Rustenburg Platinum Mines Limited, where he developed an interest in improving concentrator flowsheet performance using statistical benchmark surveys and high-confidence flotation testing. He moved to Falconbridge, Canada, in 1997, where he started up a modern Process Mineralogy group to hybridise geology, sampling, mineralogy, and mineral processing into an integrated discipline. This group has served Falconbridge and Xstrata in improving the performance of operating concentrators as well as developing new flowsheets for new orebodies.
