Congratulations Tim

A very well deserved award has been made by the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining to Tim-Napier Munn, former director of the JKMRC in Australia.

I have known Tim for over 20 years, and have collaborated with him on conferences, special issues of Minerals Engineering and more recently on the 7th edition of my book Mineral Processing Technology.

Apart from being one of the brightest guys in the minerals industry, Tim also has a great sense of humour and fun. The photo shows him and his wife Georgie at the memorable African Night at the 2003 IMPC in Cape Town. Also in the picture is Don McKee, his predecessor as Director of the JKMRC.

Next year is Australia's turn for the IMPC, in Brisbane, and Tim would have my vote for the Lifetime Achievement Award.
