The Young Mining Professionals (YMP) association in partnership with The Northern Miner will be hosting the second annual YMP Awards on March 3, 2018, at Toronto’s Shangri-La Hotel during the opening weekend of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.
The YMP Awards are named after two iconic Canadian mining entrepreneurs: Peter Munk and Eira Thomas. The YMP Awards recognizes two young mining entrepreneurs, a male and a female, who over the past year, and during the course of their careers, have shown exceptional leadership skills and innovative thinking to provide value for their companies and shareholders as well as for themselves.
YMP is reaching out to the public for help in identifying nominees. To be considered, a nominee must be under the age of 40 as of Dec. 31, 2017; currently engaged in the mining and metals industry; and domiciled in Canada, the U.S. or the United Kingdom.
Submit your nomination directly at www.youngminingprofessionals.com/nominate.
Nominations for the Peter Munk Award (male) and the Eira Thomas Award (female) are open to the public until Jan. 19, 2018. An awards committee consisting of YMP directors and a representative of The Northern Miner will evaluate the nominees and announce the winners in The Northern Miner in February 2018.
Sponsors and supporters of the YMP Awards include Barrick Gold, KPMG, Cassels Brock and the PDAC.
YMP is a growing association of young mining professionals with chapters in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and London, United Kingdom. For more information, visit www.youngminingprofessionals.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
