Rod Holcombe's Citation - presented by Gregg Webb
Rod is widely credited with injecting the fundamental concepts and principles of structural geology into the Australian mining exploration community with much benefit to the Queensland and Australian mining communities. He has also spent 32 years in academia, training a generation of Queensland geologists and providing important research on the Mt.Isa inlier, particularly in helping to construct a regional tectonic transect across the Inlier for the Mary Kathleen Fold Belt section. More recently he has been very active in contributing to our understanding of the New England Orogen in Queensland.
