McCulloch Receives 2010 Award of Excellence



On May 26, 2010, at the closing banquet for their annual meeting, the Montana Mining Association surprised Robin McCulloch with their 2010 Award of Excellence. As the Research Mining Engineer for the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, McCulloch regularly visits mining and exploration operations across Montana and offers advice and expertise to anyone interested in mining in the state. He has a master's degree in Mining Engineering from Montana Tech and has worked in the mining industry for more than 30 years.

The 2010 Award of Excellence was presented to McCulloch "in recognition of his work researching Montana's mineral occurrences and supporting the mining industry."

McCulloch was completely shocked and thrilled. "I told them if they knew giving me an award like this would make me speechless, they probably would have given it to me years ago," he said, with a grin.
