Selwyn Blaylock Canadian Mining Excellence Award

For distinguished service to Canada through exceptional achievement in the field of mining, metallurgy or geology

Established in 1948, the medal honours Selwyn G. Blaylock, one of the pioneers in the mining industry in western Canada. He was president of Cominco, recipient of several international awards for his work in metallurgy, and was the President of the Institute in 1934-35. The Selwyn Blaylock Canadian Mining Excellence Award is awarded for distinguished service to Canada through exceptional achievement in the field of mining, metallurgy, or geology. The design and dyes of this medal were donated by personal friends who desired to assist in establishing a memorial to the late and distinguished Member whose name it bears. The handsome medal itself, however, is administered by the Institute.
