:: Kevin Fraser wins 2003 Sherritt Hydrometallurgy Award

The Metallurgical Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum has awarded Kevin S. Fraser the 2003 Sherritt Hydrometallurgy Award "in recognition of his contributions and leadership in the advancement of high-pressure autoclaves in an innovative, safe and economic manner."

Kevin is the third Hatch employee to win the award in the past nine years. Dr. Bryn Harris won the award in 1995, and Dr. Brian Krysa won it in 1996.

Kevin joined Hatch in Mississauga in 1996 as Director of Autoclave Technology in the Non-Ferrous business unit. Since then, Kevin has created a specialized engineering group that is recognized worldwide for providing consulting, custom design, and commissioning services to clients who plan to use pressure leach or pressure oxidation processes.

Over the last 20 years Kevin has been involved with more than 100 engineering projects around the world, studying, constructing and operating autoclave plants.

Clients include Anglovaal, Barrick, Inco, Lihir Gold, Macraes Mining, Newmont Mining, and Santa Fe Gold.

Kevin received his B.Sc., Metallurgical Engineering at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in 1978
