Eminent Biohydrometallurgist joins the Editorial Board of Minerals Engineering

There is little doubt that biohydrometallurgy will play an increasingly important role in future mineral processing operations. Recognising this, we have appointed one of the world's foremost practitioners to the Editorial Board of Minerals Engineering.

Dr. Corale Brierley, who presented a keynote lecture at Biohydrometallurgy '14, is one half, with husband Jim, of Brierley Consultancy LLC, USA, which provides consultation to the mining and chemical industries and government agencies.

In an internationally recognized career of over 30 years, Corale has spent 20 years as an international consultant; two years with Newmont Mining Corporation as Head of Environmental Process Development; eight years of managing Advanced Minerals Technology Inc., a metal's biotechnology company; and 10 years of applied research and development at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. She was inducted in 1999 into the U.S. National Academy of Engineering for "innovations applying biotechnology to mine production and remediation". Dr. Brierley is the 2008 recipient of AIME’s James Douglas Gold Medal Award, which recognizes distinguished achievement in nonferrous metallurgy, and at the 2011 SME Meeting, was the recipient of the  Milton E. Wadsworth Award, which recognizes distinguished contributions that advance our understanding of the science and technology of non-ferrous chemical metallurgy. In December 2014 Corale and Jim Brierley will be inducted into the American Mining Hall of Fame (Medal of Merit award for transformative contributions to the mining industry).

We are very proud to have Corale involved with the future progress of Minerals Engineering.
