The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame (CMHF) has issued its yearly call for nominations that will lead to the induction of a new group of individuals in January 2016.

The high standard of living enjoyed by Canadians today stems in large part from the development of rich natural resources - agriculture, forest and minerals. Canada has been blessed with an abundance of natural resources, and also has been very fortunate to have people with the ability to convert these resources from potential assets into useful products at a price others are willing to pay.

The conversion of potential to actual wealth does not come easily, but is based on hard work, determination, skill, and some luck.

The story of mining in Canada can be told in part by describing some of the accomplishments of leaders in the industry. The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame recognizes the accomplishments of over 160 people, but it must be emphasized that hundreds of thousands of people have contributed to the success of today’s mining industry.

For the convenience of those who want to learn more about Canada’s mining industry, we have included a page called The Canadian Mining Industry, and additionally there are links to other mining-related web sites on the Members and Associates page.
