Dr Kathy Ehrig completed a Ph.D. degree in geology from the University of California-Berkeley in 1991 and left San Francisco in 1992 to join the former WMC as a research geologist to work on the genesis of the Olympic Dam deposit and to provide mineralogical support to metallurgy.
In 2006, she moved to Adelaide to lead the development of a geometallurgy program.
In recognition of her contribution to the geologic and geometallurgical understanding of the Olympic Dam deposit, Kathy has received the Professional Excellence Award from the AusIMM (2017), a degree of Doctor of Science honoris causa from Flinders University (2017), the Bruce Hobbs Medal (Geological Society of Australia, 2018), the Roy Woodall Medal (Australian Geoscience Council, 2020), and the SEG Silver Medal (2020).
