:: David Seaman wins JKMRC Award
A young chemical engineer from Zimbabwe, David Seaman, has won the award for the best paper and presentation at the 11th Annual JKMRC Conference, held in November 2002 for his paper "Bubble Load Measurement in the Pulp Zone of Industrial Flotation Machines."
Not to be confused with the legendary English soccer goal keeper of the same name, David nevertheless has a similarly determined attitude that is bringing him accolades in Australia and elsewhere for his work in flotation research.
Currently in his second year of a PhD at the University of Queensland's Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre, the conference gave David the opportunity to present his progress towards the development of a new device for the minerals industry.
The award, which carries a first prize of an international trip to a conference of the winners choice, means David will present his research at Copper 2003 in Santiago, Chile next November.
Runner up at the 11th JKMRC conference was Swedish chemist Robert Hansson, who is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Queensland's pyrometallurgy research centre Pyrosearch.
Robert presented his progress on improvements to pyrometallurgical extraction of zinc and lead through fundamental thermodynamic studies.
