This gala was part of the 2016 Conference of Metallurgists hosted by the International Mineral Processing Congress (IMPC2016), which took place in Québec City from September 11 to 15.
Joël Kapusta, François Larouche and Enzo Palumbo received this award for their paper entitled Adoption of High Oxygen Bottom Blowing in Copper Matte Smelting: Why Is It Taking So Long?, which was included in the proceedings at the 2015 Conference of Metallurgists (COM2015).
