MineConnect to establish incubator space for Northern Ontario companies to dive into southwestern U.S.
The mining industry in northern Nevada will have access to Canada’s largest concentration of hard rock mining expertise when MineConnect, Sudbury’s mining supply and service organization, sets up shop in Elko later this year.
The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Northeastern Nevada Regional Development Authority announced the signing of a three-year partnership with MineConnect to establish a business incubator space this summer to support the state’s mining industry.
The move maintains the momentum in relationship building between the two mining jurisdictions and this country’s expanding investment in Nevada’s robust mining industry, ranging from equipment manufacturing to gold mining.
MineConnect, formerly known as SAMSSA, represents a membership of 190 companies and 8,800 employees across Northern Ontario.
“I’m very excited to welcome MineConnect to Nevada, a non-profit that will enhance one of our most important industries,” said Governor Steve Sisolak in a recent news release.
