CMIC opens office in Sudbury, Ontario

In order to create a mining industry that is both profitable and sustainable, CMIC provides a forum via which industry and thought leaders can share their experiences and insights with a view to collaborating on technology projects.

In 2020, we opened a new office in Sudbury, Ontario in partnership with MineConnect and Norcat. This is an exciting way for CMIC to be part of one of Canada’s mining epicentres.

“This expansion represents another significant milestone in CMIC’s continued growth and is indicative of our alignment with industry’s commitment to collaboration”, said Carl Weatherell, our Executive Director and CEO.
