Mine supply group seeks Hall of Fame nominees

Deadline for submissions to MineConnect is Jan. 30

Northern Ontario’s mine supply and services association is seeking nominations for 2021 inductees into its Hall of Fame.

MineConnect put out the call for submissions to its members on Jan. 6.

The organization’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to those industry leaders who have made significant, lasting contributions to the Northern Ontario mining supply and service sector.

“Northern Ontario mining supply and service companies have impacted the evolution of mining worldwide and are responsible for much of the innovation that is employed today to increase mineral production, all the while making it a safer and healthier working environment for miners,” a Jan. 6 release from MineConnect notes.

“Making this all happen are Northern Ontario industry leaders who continually strive for improvement in products and processes resulting in one of the world’s most recognized supply and service clusters.”

Members have until Jan. 30 to submit their nominations.

In 2020, MineConnect named two members to its Hall of Fame.

Steve Matusch, the late founder of Ionic Technology Group, was lauded posthumously for his contributions to the field of mechatronics, while Walter Siggelkow, the founder and current president of Hard-Line, was recognized for his work in automation, teleoperation, and remote-control technology.

Founded in Sudbury in 2003 with just a handful of companies, MineConnect (formerly the Sudbury area Mining Supply and Service Association, or SAMSSA) now represents hundreds of companies and organizations in the mine supply and service from across Northern Ontario.
