Inaugural winner of the Roy Woodall Medal

Home I Inaugural winner of the Roy Woodall Medal

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.
