It is with great sadness that we report the passing away of our dear colleague Brian Oldfield. In recent years Brian was enjoying semi-retirement in Portugal but continued to have significant input on our projects. He was a founder of IOG, proposed the initial licence application for Blythe and completed the technical work in support of the application, without which IOG would not exist today. Brian’s 50 years of technical experience has been invaluable to IOG but also his broader input to the team has been significant. His relaxed tone and extensive knowledge allowed him to convey his ideas in a clear manner. His enthusiasm for exploration and his interest in new technology remained to the end. Brian Oldfield was more than a colleague; he was a mentor and a friend. He will be greatly missed by the IOG team and our thoughts are with his family.
