:: JKMRC Leadership Changes - New Strategies in SMI Mining and Minerals Processing Research to Result

The Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI) at The University of Queensland has undertaken an international search for a new Director of the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC). The recruitment process has generated the opportunity to reassess the strategic directions of the mining and minerals processing research and commercialisation goals of the SMI.

Professor Chris Moran, Director of SMI announced that the view of the University is that the current Interim Director of JKMRC, Dr Geoff Gault, is the best person to lead the JKMRC during this phase. As a result, he has announced that Dr Gault will be appointed as Director of the JKMRC from 1 August 2010.

“Geoff Gault brings a wealth of industry and technical experience to the position. He has established a rapport with the staff and sponsors of the Centre over the last 6 months that positions him and the Centre well for strategic changes.

Dr Gault is an alumnus of the JKMRC and understands what is needed for the Centre to continue to deliver the world-leading outcomes that industry has come to expect”, Professor Moran said.
