The Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Service Association (SAMSSA) honoured Roy Slack, President of Cementation Canada Inc., as its 2018 Hall of Fame inductee on December 10 at Dynamic Earth in Sudbury. Roy has been instrumental as a service provider to the mining sector for over 35 years, much of that time spent in the Sudbury and North Bay regions.
Roy said, “Being recognized by my peers within SAMSSA, the greatest conglomeration of mining service providers in the world, is truly a great honour.” Roy’s continued dedication to the mining industry has been demonstrated through the numerous companies and organizations he has committed countless time and energy towards, supporting all stakeholders’ interests.
Roy’s passion for the mining service industry is demonstrated in the conclusion of his acceptance speech as SAMSSA’s 2018 Hall of Fame inductee. He said, “I fell in love with building mines, and then building companies to build mines. I’m still in awe of the process from concept to design to completion, and the people who do the work.”
