PRESENTATION: "Nickel Laterite Technology—Finally a New Dawn?"
ABSTRACT: It is unanimously agreed that the future prospects for the global nickel industry are extremely good. This is because the main use of nickel is in stainless steel, the production of which is directly related to world industrial growth. Since the majority of the world’s nickel resources now reside in nickel oxide laterite deposits, over the past few decades there has been steady growth in the development of technology to treat these ores. In 1998 it appeared that the nickel industry would enter a new era of low cost production from laterites with the start up of three entrepreneurial plants in Western Australia, all of which used High Pressure Acid Leach technology. In fact, the opening of these plants proved to be a false dawn since all three immediately ran into major operational and financial issues. Now in 2005 several of the major nickel producers have finally advanced technology to the point of announcing the start of large scale projects for the treatment of laterites based on sound engineering and realistic economics. This presentation reviews the technology options selected for the new plants and, in particular, outlines the strategy which Noranda/Falconbridge is using for the development of its Koniambo deposit in New Caledonia.
LECTURER: Michael G. King is Senior Director of Metallurgical Technology for Noranda Inc./Falconbridge Ltd. Dr. King is the author of some 20 technical publications and holds four patents. Currently, he supervises strategic technology development in nickel and copper for Noranda/Falconbridge, the largest Canadian non-ferrous mining company, at the Falconbridge Technology Centre in Sudbury. Dr. King is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist (UK). His main professional interests have been in the minor metals and he is a former president of the Selenium-Tellurium Development Association. He has been a member of TMS since 1987.
134th TMS-AIME Dinner and Awards Presentation with Installation of 2005 TMS President
Date & Time: Tuesday, February 15, 2005 ~ 6:00 pm
The highlight of the TMS Annual Meeting will begin with a cash bar reception at 6:00 pm and dinner at 7:00 pm. A presentation and recognition of the Society and Technical Division award recipients will be followed by the annual address to the Society by 2004 President Gregory J. Hildeman, who will then introduce Tresa M. Pollock the 2005 President.
Tresa M. Pollock is professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She graduated with a B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from Purdue University in 1984 and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1989. She was employed at General Electric Aircraft Engines from 1989 to 1991, where she conducted research and development on high-temperature alloys for aircraft turbine engines. Dr. Pollock was a professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University from 1991 to 1999. She is a fellow of ASM International and has received the ASM International Research Silver Medal Award, the Purdue University Outstanding Alumni Award, the Bradley Stoughton Award, the Carnegie Mellon Ladd Research Award, a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, and the CMU Alcoa Professorship. Dr. Pollock has been a member of TMS since 1989 and has served on the Board of Directors as the Director of Student Affairs and the Chair of the Structural Materials Division. Dr. Pollock has also served on numerous technical and administrative committees including the Titanium Committee, the High Temperature Alloys Committee, the Public & Governmental Affairs Committee, and the Nominating Committee.

by Design: Jewelry to Jets"
LECTURER: Sarah Nichols became Carnegie Museum of Art’s curator of decorative arts in 1992. She holds this position jointly with that of chief curator to which she was appointed in 1996. During her tenure at the museum, she has installed many distinguished exhibitions. The most recent major exhibition she curated, Aluminum by Design: Jewelry to Jets which also included a significant publication and website, has just completed its seven venue international tour. Born in Manchester, England, Nichols studied at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England where she received a First Class Honors B.A. degree in Art History. She was a Winterthur Program Fellow in Early American Culture at the University of Delaware, Newark, where she received her M.A. in Decorative Arts and Museum Studies. Nichols has written and lectured extensively on a wide range of decorative arts topics from eighteenth century furniture to contemporary ceramics and glass.
