:: AMIRA International Celebrates its Fiftieth Year of Service to the Mineral Industry

Friday 24 July marked the 50th anniversary of a meeting convened at the Headquarters of the AusIMM at which AMIRA was inaugurated by the then leaders of the Australian minerals industry.

This group attending included Ian McLennan, Chief Executive of BHP (now BHP Billiton), Morris Mawby (Consolidated Zinc, now part of Rio Tinto), George Fisher (Mount Isa Mines, now absorbed into Xstrata) and G. Lindesay Clark (WMC, now absorbed into BHP Billiton).

All of this group were Australian and all were eventually awarded knighthoods for their services to the industry - and rightly so: each played a role in expanding the activities of the companies they headed and in several cases paved the way for the emergence of their companies as global players.

The Association they founded has, through nearly a thousand research projects, returned to industry dividends on their research investment of more than a billion dollars.
