Ian Hore-Lacy

Mr Hore-Lacy joined the mining industry as an environmental scientist in 1974. He spent 20 years with CRA (now Rio Tinto), finishing in Corporate Relations. He took a particular interest in the Ranger Inquiry in the 1970s. He has written several books on mining and related issues and is author of Nuclear Electricity, the seventh edition of which went up on the web in 2003. It is a widely used school text in Australia dealing with nuclear power. He was closely involved with the production of Out of the Fiery Furnace, a TV documentary series shown in over twenty countries on how through history people have progressively developed technology in the service of humankind. He also worked with the Australian Conservation Foundation on education projects in the early 1970s.

He is a Fellow of the Australian College of Education and a Member of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. His particular interests range from the technical to the ethical and theological aspects of mineral resources and their use, especially nuclear power.

Since 2001 he has also been Head of Communications for the World Nuclear Association in London.
