:: David Pollard, 1945-2018
David Pollard was a member of the AusIMM for 58 years, having joined in April of 1961 as a Student in the first year of his Diploma at the Ballarat School of Mines and Industry. He was the youngest person to ever join the AusIMM at the age of 16.
David also brought the Metallurgical Plant Design (MetPlant) conference series to the AusIMM when AMF closed, and convened this successful series with Geoff Dunlop from 2002 to 2015. In 2016, David approached Janine Herzig to hand over the reigns of MetPlant, they convened a very successful 2017 event together and also launched the AusIMM spectrum “We are Metallurgists, Not Magicians” which was a project initially undertaken by David and Geoff, that Janine was able to help fast-track in 2016/17 to ensure a launch in 2017 in both hard and soft copy format.
David passed away with his family by his side in Adelaide on August 12th, aged 73.
