The high standard of living enjoyed by Canadians today stems in large part from the development of rich natural resources - agriculture, forest and minerals.

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.
