The AusIMM Metallurgical Society Presents the Delprat Distinguished Lecture Series Tour

Join the AusIMM Metallurgical Society and the host Branches to hear from distinguished speaker JP Franzidis for the 2019 Delprat Memorial Lecture on the topic of Mining and Society.

Professor J-P Franzidis joined the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in 1983 and was involved in flotation research for over 30 years.

In 1996, he joined the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) at the University of Queensland, Australia, to lead the AMIRA P9 project, a major research collaboration between the JKMRC and UCT, McGill University, the University of Newcastle (Australia) and Hacettepe University in Turkey.

He returned to UCT in 2007 as the founding director of the Minerals to Metals Initiative and was instrumental in establishing the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree specializing in Sustainable Mineral Resource Development, which is delivered in association with the University of Zambia in Lusaka.

He retired from UCT at the end of 2014, and now lives in Australia. He continues to participate in the MPhil, as part of the teaching team.

2019 Delprat Memorial Lecture

Mining and Society

Mining has been a part of human history for millennia and has been integral to the development of what we now call society.

Mining has given us coins, cannons and computers; it has also produced legacy effects that will endure for centuries to come.

This lecture explores the history of mining and society, the impacts of mining on society, the impacts of society on mining, and mining and society in the 21st century and beyond.

In particular, it tries to address the perception of mining companies as (direct quote) “unscrupulous, environmentally destructive, exacerbating the poverty of local communities while creating wealth only for an elite, and destroying the social fabric of communities.”
