Best people in mineral exploration

We will be closing the nominations for the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame in August. Do you wish to nominate someone who has contributed in an outstanding way to technology development in exploration or efficiency, safety, productivity, that discipline? Contact [email protected] about nominations.

The chosen nominees will be inducted at the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame gala dinner at the Hyatt Regency at Colorado Convention Center, Denver on February 25, 2019. The dinner is a key event in the SME Annual Conference week.

There are no current nominations shortlisted in this Exploration category. However the nominations committee has suggested that the developer(s) of Leapfrog 3D, Megatem and MMI geochemistry would all be worthy of nomination. There are of course many other worthy candidates – let us hear from you.

The last inductee was Duncan Crone, a pioneering Canadian mining geophysicist, explorationist and entrepreneur. He was a very innovative, practical-minded geophysicist who made numerous important contributions to the advancement of mining geophysics and to mineral exploration discoveries during his long career.

There is a total of 12 categories and nominations are welcomed for all of them: Bulk Handling, Concentration, Comminution, Exploration, Environmental Management and Stewardship, Metallurgy, Mining Software, Safety, Surface Mining, Underground Development, Underground Production and Outstanding Innovator.
