AEG Honorary Membership to CRC LEME "Visitor" Prof Gerry Govett

The role of a CRC Program Visitor is that of a mentor to the CEO and Executives and that person also becomes a 'bridge' between the CRC Program management and the management of a CRC. LEME is very fortunate to have Professor Gerry Govett as our Visitor and we are proud to publicise his recent award.

Butt Smith Medal

CSIRO in collaboration with CRC LEME is calling for nominations for the inaugural Butt-Smith Medal, to be awarded in 2004.

The medal recognises and honours the significant contribution of Charles Butt and Ray Smith to research and development related to the mineral industry in Australia through their lifelong association with CSIRO and CRC LEME.

The work they pioneered in the early 1970s and developed with colleagues is widely credited as having contributed to several successful exploration programs in the 1980s and 1990s.

A $15000 grant will accompany the medal, which will be awarded every two years. It is open to geoscientists who have made an outstanding and sustained contribution linking regolith science to exploration in Australia.

Nominations for the Butt-Smith Medal close on 31 December 2003. For further information contact Steve Harvey on 08 6436 8610, by email or visit
