Ten years of Clustering and Competition Creates World Class Mining Enviroment. SAMSSA Founder Dick DeStefano highlights history and results of "Porter's Development Strategy".
Sudbury is Canada's Mining Superstore Originally published in Sudbury Mining Solutions Journal.
Over the past decade, the Northern Ontario city has been subtly shifting its focus from being a producer of metals to a creator of mining know-how and technology. Vale and Glencore Xstrata both serve as anchors for the cluster and collectively has contributed almost $4 billion to the local economy and employed 13,800 people.
Drawing on this network of expertise, many Sudbury-area ﬁrms are producing advanced technology for the mining sector, including robotic processing systems or even space drills . It is this type of networking opportunity that awaits the mining sector this coming Fall with the North America Mining Expo.
