How was it possible for an idea which had its beginning in a tin shed in a Brisbane suburb to grow into one of the world’s leading minerals and mining research centres? The answer lies in the story of the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) at The University of Queensland.

The title The Next Move is adapted from a much-used question by the founding leader of the JKMRC, Alban Lynch, to postgraduate students in the 1960s and 1970s. After reviewing their progress, he would usually ask ‘What’s your next move?’

This book seeks to capture the last 50 years of the JKMRC - its people and its innovative research, and look ahead to the next 50.
