SAMSSA Hall of Fame
The SAMSSA Hall of Fame will recognize management leaders who have developed and provided mining advancing technologies and/or products and services that have improved the efficiencies of mining globally and domestically and have built or assisted in building companies in Northern Ontario that have proven to be successful.
The leaders in the mining supply and service industry have proven that mining is only as efficient and productive as the quality of products and services provided from mining supply companies. Over 400 Northern Ontario mining supply and service companies can boast of their
historical influence in mining camps worldwide and their significant employment opportunities for skilled personnel making this sector larger in number than all direct mining and refining jobs in Northern Ontario. Making this all happen are industry managers and leaders who have improved their craft and management skills and have created a major industrial sector that is recognized globally.
SAMSSA wishes to recognize those leaders both living or deceased by hosting and honouring the best member leaders at their Annual meeting held every December and acknowledging the time, effort and competencies these selected visionaries have brought to Northern Ontario.
The winners will be an integral part of the SAMSSA web site in a special portal that recognizes their valuable contribution and they will receive a special token of appreciation.
