Vancouver – The Mining Suppliers Association of British Columbia (MSABC) applauds the recent induction of Robert Hunter and Robert Dickinson, co-founders of Hunter Dickinson Inc (HDI), to the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame. “We were very pleased to hear that Robert Hunter and Robert Dickinson were recognized for their remarkable contributions to the mining industry in BC, elsewhere in Canada and abroad,” said Patty Moore, Chair of MSABC. The co-founders were recognized for a 25-year record of success that includes the establishment of 19 public and private companies, and dozens of mineral properties on six continents.
Under their leadership HDI also became a leader in supporting industry charities and contributing to the work of industry associations. “It is important to recognize HDI’s support for important industry initiatives, such as the Mineral Resources Education Program of BC, which provides educational tools and assistance to teachers across the province,” said Moore. “They have also played a very active role in BC industry associations, and were one of the first mining firms to participate in MSABC activities when we formed in 1986,” added Moore.
