:: End Of An Era
After 38 years of dedicated service to Roche Mining (MT), Ian Terrill retired in July 2004.
Ian first joined Roche Mining (MT) (then known as Mineral Deposits Limited) in the 1970ís as Chief Metallurgist, originally being given the brief to take MD into new markets. At that time the company was primarily focussed on the Mineral Sands Industry both as a mining company and as an emerging supplier of specific technology and equipment. Ian became a driving force, soon achieving new in-roads using our Metallurgical Laboratory to prove the application of our products in Iron Ore and Base Metals.
Ian assumed many challenges during his time with Roche (MT), including opening the Mineral Deposits office in the USA and undertaking extensive travel to become the face of MD in many other parts of the world.
When asked of his greatest accomplishments Ian has said that developing the business in India, complete with an infrastructure based on local staff he mentored and trained, is the achievement of which he is most proud.
"Ian has always been a 'hands on' person, preferring to be directly involved in activities and drawn to mineral sands operations where he constantly sought to create improvements and productivity gains. Ian has contributed significantly to the success of this Company over the last 3 decades and Roche greatly values and respects Ianís contributions and the passionate way in which he committed himself throughout the years,"said Glen Zille, Roche Mining (MT)ís General Manager.
