IMPC Young Author Award for CMR PhD candidate Jestos Taguta

Jestos Taguta, a PhD candidate in the Centre for Minerals Research, was awarded one of ten young author awards at the recent XXVIII International Mineral Processing Congress. This prestigious award is given for the most outstanding papers presented at one of the foremost mineral processing congresses, where the main author must be younger than 35 years old. The winners were honoured at the IMPC banquet held in Quebec City on 14 September 2016. Jestos’ paper was entitled “Relating enthalpies of adsorption of thiol collectors on base metal sulfide minerals to their floatability” and was based on the work that he completed for his MSc, which was awarded in 2015.
