Steve Morrell is inducted into the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame

Great to hear that Dr. Steve Morrell has been inducted into International Mining's Hall of Fame (MEI Online). Steve was a Masters student at Australia's JKMRC around 30 years ago, and the founding Director of the JKMRC, Prof. Alban Lynch, was also inaugurated into the Hall of Fame five years ago (posting of 5th December 2013).
Steve has been a major contributor to MEI's comminution conferences, as a founder of CITIC SMCC Process Technology Pty Ltd, Australia, which provides independent technical services to various mining projects, mainly in the area of comminution circuit design, technology and equipment selection, and optimization of mineral processing plants. The company operates as an independent consulting company, and is ultimately owned by conference sponsor CITIC Heavy Industries, a market leader in China with equipment operating successfully in China and around the world, including Asia, Europe, America, Africa and Australia.

  1. Steve, you are a deserving recipient. Your commitment to industrial measurement and unbiased analysis of data has led the comminution world forward. Not only that, but your leadership in AMIRA P9 and JKMRC research spawned numerous advances that would not have occurred without you at the helm. Enjoy your retirement and we will continue to use your contributions daily.
    Dean David, Technical Director - Process at Wood
