:: Australian Academics Inaugurated into Mining Hall of Fame
The International Mining Technology Hall of Fame college of voters for 2013 has deliberated over the individuals and teams nominated for the various categories and have made their final decisions. These are the first inductees and their industry contributions will be celebrated at the Gala Dinner in the Grand America Hotel, Salt Lake City on February 22, 2014 - the night before the SME Annual Convention kicks off.
There are two awards for mineral processing, Comminution and Concentration.
The inductee for Communition is Prof Alban Lynch, who made major contributions to both research and education in this field. He founded the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC), which amongst other things, developed models that led to the world’s first widely-used PC-based mineral processing simulator, JKSimMet, for the simulation of crushers, grinding mills and hydrocyclones, which continues to be used routinely around the world to-day.
For Concentration, Prof. Graeme Jameson is recognised for being a true pioneer in innovative flotation research, being the inventor of the Jameson Cell which bears his name. This was first introduced 25 years ago and is now installed in over 320 operations worldwide.
