About this event

This year the JK Lecture by Mark Noppe is being hosted as part of the New Leaders Conference at the United Services Club Queensland Inc. The emphasis is on providing advice to students on the potential of their career in the mining industry.

Julius Kruttschnitt rescued the Mount Isa Mine and then contributed to research and education in the industry. In this tradition, Mark will present the JK Lecture based on his experiences in the mining industry and how these can help students to choose and manage their own career paths.
