Chairman's Remarks: 
Helping the kids at the hospital fits with the culture of mining people. I have been very fortunate to be a part of “Mining For Miracles” for years. Fundraising for Children’s began for me because it was an existing industry charity. I quickly became committed when I visited the hospital and realized what we could do as an industry to help. There are no words to describe the emotions of talking to a young teenager at the hospital who has serious cancer or another life threatening disease. You quickly realize their strength is greater than yours. All I can do is keep fund raising and put as many smiles as I can back where they belong. My lifelong association with the mining industry has thankfully allowed be to be a small part of the team.

Mining for Miracles Fellowship

In 1995, the mining group pledged $500,000 over four years to endow a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship. The lucky recipients of this fellowship have been Dr. Elizabeth Lawlor, Dr. Sara Morrison and most recently, Dr. Colin Ross.

Dr. Elizabeth Lawlor – Solid Tumour Research in oncology
Dr. Sara Morrison – Pain measurement in low birth rate infants.

Dr. Colin Ross – Genetic research into condition where children are unable to process lypo protein which is essentially fat. Children suffering from this have very painful stomach problems and discomfort.
