Forging mining ties with Mexico – by Staff (Sudbury Star – March 13, 2017)

The Greater Sudbury area now has a mining connection with a Mexican state.

During Mexico Mining Day last week at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada convention in Toronto, Nickel Belt Liberal MP Marc Serre signed a letter of intent for the Greater Sudbury Development Corporation, the Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Services Association and the State of Guerrero.

The three parties agreed to work together for mutual economic benefit. “Collaboration and creating partnerships are important to the growth of our economy, communities and countries,” Serre said in a news release. “Each year, the industry employs nearly 20,000 residents of Northern Ontario.

It’s important to note the amount of time, dedication and succession planning it takes to bring this forward. It has been a pleasure representing our region at PDAC and I believe Greater Sudbury is the best represented city at the convention.”

The letter of intent means all parties agree to work together to identify, analyze and develop opportunities for collaboration in the support of mineral development in the state of Guerrero. These opportunities might include commercial enterprise, capacity building and technical innovation. They can also explore the development of a more formal collaborative framework.

The letter of intent will remain in effect for a period of three years unless terminated or amended with the mutual written consent of the participants.

“The Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Service Association is pleased to be a supporter and partner in this important relationship,” said Dick DeStefano, SAMSSA’s executive director. “Working together we will increase the opportunities between the Sudbury Supply Cluster and the State of Guerrero.
