AEG Honorary Membership to CRC LEME "Visitor" Prof
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. Read the presentation
record by Dr David Garnett, Chair of the AEG Honorary Membership
Committee and CRC LEME Board Member.
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
Nominations for the Butt-Smith Medal close on 31 December 2003.
