Where are they now?

I get the impression, travelling around the world, that most mineral processors are at least aware of the MEI blog even though they may only visit it irregularly.
As the blog is very much about people, I thought it might be a good forum for catching up with people that you worked or associated with in the past and often wondered where they are now and what they are doing.
If you have somone you would like to catch up with, just leave a comment on this posting, and hopefully someone will see it and respond. I will start the ball rolling with the first request for info, and every few months I will highlight the posting to keep it active.


  1. Does anyone know of the whereabouts of Tony Watts and Pete Deverill, who were colleagues at Nchanga during my first few months on the concentrator in late 1969?

    1. Tony Watts is centre in this photo at Nchanga in 1969. Mick Boylett is on the right [image src=""/]

  2. Has anyone heard from Peter Jacobi ? ex-Cominco chief concentration engineer responsible for the Red Doogs and alike? Father of the CESL Column Flotation group who eventually sold to CPT and then to Eriez.

  3. I would also like to trace Bill Cooke, who graduated from Leeds University as a metallurgist in 1966, and who I shared a flat with in our final year. Bill and I are pictured in the flat in 1965 [image src=""/]
