The AGC has great pleasure in announcing that the inaugural winner of the Roy Woodall medal is Dr Kathy Ehrig. Dr Ehrig has spent a large part of her career documenting the giant Olympic Dam Cu-Au-U ore deposit, arguably Australia’s most significant accumulation of metal. Her work has provided the conceptual framework that has supported BHP’s recent Oak Dam West discovery. Dr Ehrig is a particularly fitting inaugural winner of this award because she was personally recruited by Roy Woodall to WMC Resources from University of California – Berkley and was subsequently a long-term mentee of Roy’s. It is anticipated a formal presentation of this medal will be made at an appropriate forum in the near-future when the current COVID-related restrictions are eased.
