North Bay’s Roy Slack, the President of Cementation Canada Inc., has been honoured by the Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Service Association (SAMSSA) as the organization’s 2018 Hall of Fame inductee.
Slack commented that “being recognized by my peers within SAMSSA, the greatest conglomeration of mining service providers in the world is truly a great honour,” during SAMSSA’s annual meeting Monday at Dynamic Earth in Sudbury. Slack has been a service provider to the mining sector for over 35 years, with much of that time spent in the Sudbury and North Bay regions.
Slack concluded his induction speech, saying, “I fell in love with building mines, and then building companies to build mines. The process from concept to design to completion, and the people who do the work, I am still in awe of. Our industry, the mine service industry, continues to strive to make our work safe and efficient so more of our clients can realize their dreams of having an operating mine. We just want to realize our dream of building it for them.”
