:: Mineral Industry Operating Technique Award to Bill Johnson and Peter Woodall
The Mineral Industry Operating Technique Award (MIOTA) has been conferred on Bill Johnson and Peter Woodall, who were the driving force in the development of the IsaMillTM, leading the design changes to upscale and modify the technology for the mining industry. Their work resulted in the creation of a new technology which has moved from fine grinding to mainstream minerals grinding. The successful development of the IsaMillTM enabled the development of the McArthur River Deposit, which until then had been untreatable. IsaMills later proved to be the enabling technology for the George Fisher deposit and the Black Star Open cut deposits at Mt Isa.
