3 old crocks on the Gold Coast




Great picture just in by email of two very well known mineral processors, Tony-Holland Batt (left) and Tim Napier-Munn, posing by Tim's pride and joy, his vintage E-type Jaguar.
Tim retired some years ago as Director of Australia's JKMRC, but still retains an active interest in the minerals industry. In fact Jon caught up with him only two weeks ago at the Mill Operators' Conference in Adelaide (2nd photo).
Tony Holland-Batt is happily retired on the Gold Coast, dividing his time between golf and indulging a long-standing desire to compose music. Samples of his compositions can be heard on myspace.com in the music category under the title "Compositions by Tony Holland-Batt". In his working career Tony lectured at the Royal School of Mines for eight years prior to moving to Australia where he worked for Mineral Deposits Ltd for 23 years. In 1995 he relocated to Denver, Colorado where he worked for Hazen Research before retiring back to Australia in 2000.
Two great characters who it is always a joy to meet.
