In 2020, Samantha McGarry, Sudbury INO’s Site Rehabilitation Lead, received the Dr. Jack Winch Early Career Award for her breadth of work in reclamation. Her thesis work with Dr. Graeme Spiers and Dr. Peter Beckett began in 2009 and encompassed research that later became an active project, which involved the growth of energy crops on mine tailings using organic residuals.

Throughout her career at Glencore, Sam has remained focused on promoting research related to reclamation and fostering student success at all levels of education.

Also in 2020, Brad Simser, Principal Ground Control Engineer, earned the CIM Rock Mechanics Award. An exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable and talented engineer, Brad has written numerous papers on the practical application of rock mechanics principles in mining operations, and his recommendations can be attributed to helping underground workers come home safely every day.

Brad realizes that it is important for mining companies to investigate and document new methods and technologies for the next generation, with the hope that they will be able to further advance the field of rock mechanics.

Published every two years, 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining is a magazine that celebrates contributions by women in the global mining industry. According to the publication, these Women in Mining (WIM) show impressive diversity in their mining sector talents, and their recognition and celebration is not only well-deserved, but also a key aspect of changing attitudes in the mining sector. Amélie Rouleau, Raglan Mine’s Director of Public Affairs, Communications and Community Engagement was one of the 100 women recognized in 2020, among 1,100 nominations.

Safety leadership in the field

Many of our supervisors working at our industrial sites exemplify safety leadership earning due recognition from their peers. In October 2020, supervisors at the Horne Smelter, Matagami Mine and Raglan Mine were recognized by the Québec Mining Association (QMA), which commended their efforts, and the effort made by their teams, to maintain a safe working environment for periods of between 50,000 and 600,000 hours.

Deserving of a special mention are Kitchen Supervisors at Raglan Mine, Molly McKinnon and Maxime Thériault, who reached 250,000 and 300,000 hours, respectively, without an accident as of the end of 2020. Moreover, a very special mention went to Israël Gauthier and his team at the Horne Smelter’s acid and oxygen plant, who broke a new record by completing 600,000 hours of work without an accident.

We pride ourselves on fostering our strong internal culture and believe this is why our experienced professionals earn the respect and recognition from their peers in the industry and are seen as leaders in their respective fields. We look forward to sustaining this reputation in the years ahead.
