In Memory

We mourn the loss  of J. Burgess Winter, an Advisory Board member, who passed away on September 17, 2018 at the age of 85. Burgess had an extraordinary career in the mining industry. He worked internationally for several companies and became President and CEO at Magma Copper Company in 1988. He was universally credited with turning around the company, which at the time was the third largest copper company in the US.
Burgess later did some private consultancy work for a number of companies, and he was the recipient of many accolades and awards, including: induction into the American Mining Hall of Fame; recipient of William Lawrence Saunders Gold Medal Award and also the Daniel C. Jackling Award by the Society for Mining Engineers, and recipient of the Financial World CEO of the Year Award. He had also, in his career, held directorships of the American Mining Congress, the American Business Conference, the National Mining Hall of Fame, and the Tucson Electric Power Company.
Burgess was not only known for his expertise and contributions to the mining industry, but he was kind and generous of heart. He will be sadly missed by all who have been inspired by him.
