:: SME Award to Courtney Young

Dr. Courtney Young, Montana Tech Department Head and ASARCO Distinguished Professor of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, will receive the 2008 Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) President’s Citation which recognizes significant individual contributions to SME.

SME is an international society of professionals in the minerals industry. Membership is more than 12,000 strong, with nearly 100 countries being represented. Since its inception in 1871 as an affiliate society to AIME, SME continues to evolve to stay abreast of industry changes and to reflect the ever-broadening interests of its members. SME has seven divisions of which Dr. Young is most active with the mineral and metallurgical processing division (MPD). He serves on their Executive Board and was recently named to serve on the Robert H. Richards Award Committee.

Dr. Young will be presented with the award at the SME Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado in February 2009. His citation will read “The Society recognizes Courtney Young for his contribution in developing and organizing the 6th International Symposium on Hydrometallurgy. His leadership and dedication to the dissemination of technical information is acknowledged with appreciation."

Dr. Young has a great reputation for organizing the best of symposia, having done 9 to date; however, he is always quick to recognize his colleagues that he feels fortunate enough to work with: “I might be the quarterback on efforts like this but they amount to nothing without a great offensive line!" Consequently, regarding the aforementioned symposium, he in turn extends his appreciation to Dr. Corby Anderson, Director for the Center for Advanced Mineral & Metallurgical Processing (CAMP) at Montana Tech; Dr. Pat Taylor, The Ansell Professor of Metallurgy at Colorado School of Mines; Dr. Yeonuk Choi, Manager at Barrick Gold Corporation; as well as the behind-the-scene efforts of Mr. Marc LeVier, Director of Metallurgical Research and Development at Newmont Mining Corporation.
