Tim Shaw – In Memoriam


We are sad to announce that Professor Tim Shaw, EduMine author, passed away on April 21st, at the age of 82.

Professor Shaw was Emeritus Professor of Mining Engineering at Imperial College London, having retired in 2001 after being appointed to the Chair in Mining Engineering at the Royal School of Mines in 1980. Prior to that, he held an academic appointment at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

He entered the academic environment after a successful career in the South African mining industry where he reached the level of Chief Consulting Engineer with the Johannesburg Consolidated Investment Company. Professor Shaw had extensive experience as a technical consultant and company director and held honorary doctorates from two Central European Universities.

With deepest sympathies, the EduMine team.
