:: Australia's Most Prestigious Award for Excellence in Science to Graeme Jameson
Prof. Graeme Jameson, of the University of Newcastle, Australia, has received this year’s inaugural A$250,000 Prime Minister's Prize for Innovation. The Prime Minister's Prizes for Science are Australia’s most prestigious and highly regarded awards for excellence in scientific research, innovation and science teaching.The Prize was presented last night by the Australian Prime Minister, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull, at a dinner in the Great Hall at Parliament House, Canberra.
Graeme was one of six prize winners for science in 2015 and he received the prize for "how trillions of bubbles earned billions for Australia". This refers, of course, to the well known Jameson Cell, considered by many to be the nation's biggest export earner in the last 25 years. With well over 300 cells now in operation across 25 countries, the Cell is being used for copper, coal, zinc, nickel, lead, silver and platinum extraction world-wide.
