In memoriam: Bill Mundle

13 June 2023


William Irving (Bill) Mundle passed away on March 2, 2023 with his wife by his side, at Cumberland Regional Health Care Center, Amherst. He was born February 5, 1939 in Pugwash, to Irving and Edna (Snowdon) Mundle.

Following high school, Bill graduated from Mount Allison University with a degree in geology. Eventually he worked as Managing Director of Boart Longyear Company and in 1978 purchased Logan Brothers Diamond Drilling, which became Logan Drilling Group. He developed this into an international company with subsidiary companies in Georgia, USA and Medellin, Colombia. At the time of his passing he was CEO and Chairman of the Board, and very proud to still be involved with the company. Throughout his career Bill developed many life long friendships and had great appreciation for all of his employees.

For many years Bill was very much involved with the Mining Society of Nova Scotia, The Canadian Institute of Mining, from which he received a Fellowship Award, and The Mining Association of Nova Scotia.


CIM is more than an organization – it is a community of people who share a common passion for the mining industry. We would like to extend our condolences to friends and family of the deceased as we remember those who have passed away. Though they are no longer with us, their work and accomplishments live on.

We do our best to publish all the names of recently deceased CIM members and apologize if there are any we have missed. Please send notices to
