The Northern Miner celebrates 100 years of publication with a special anniversary issue
It is rare for a publication to turn one century old. But this is just the milestone that employees and readers of The Northern Miner are celebrating this year.
It was a hundred years ago that journalist Ben Hughes and printer Ernie Hand launched The Northern Miner from the silver fields of Cobalt, Ontario. While the weekly paper was started with a Northern Ontario focus, by 1929 it had outgrown its humble origins and moved to the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, where it widened its editorial scope and its reach across Canada and beyond.
The Northern Miner, now owned by Glacier Media Inc. (TSX:GVC), stands as the mining industry’s most trusted source of daily independent reporting and opinions. It is a reputation earned by sending reporters across the globe to report on projects that matter.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, The Northern Miner will be publishing a special 100th anniversary edition magazine on May 11, 2015. This magazine will capture the most important moments over the last hundred years in mining, making it an important reference for anyone with more than a passing interest in the mining and exploration industries.
TSX will also be joining The Northern Miner in celebrating their 100th anniversary by inviting the publication’s editorial and sales teams led by publisher Anthony Vaccaro to open the stock market trading floor on May 7th, 2015. TSX plays host to a number of mining and exploration companies that The Northern Miner regularly reports on.
The Northern Miner is a mining news service that reports on the global mining and exploration industry in print and online. The Northern Miner is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Glacier Media Inc. (TSX:GVC).
