Northern Gateway cruisin' for a cause

CIM Northern Gateway 2010 cruise 

In June, the North Bay-based CIM Northern Gateway Branch hosted their Annual Boat Cruise on Lake Nipissing. Held in partnership with the Ontario Mining Association, the event kicked off the organization’s biennial conference. The group of 135 enjoyed great tunes and a fantastic barbeque dinner during the two-and-a-half hour scenic cruise on the Chief Commanda II.

Event proceeds were donated to a number of initiatives, such as the Scholarship Program and the 2010 Mining Teachers Tour, an event hosted by the Canadian Ecology Centre.

“Special thanks go to our generous sponsors who made this event a resounding success,” says Tim Bremner, chairman and senior vice-president of Foraco Canada Ltd. “It is with ongoing support that we continue to raise awareness of existing opportunities in the mining industry.”

The CIM Northern Gateway Branch is continuing its stride with its Annual Golf Tournament, to be held on September 17 at the High View Golf Course in the North Bay area.
