In recognition and appreciation of outstanding service to the minerals industry and to the Society.
Art is a 1970 Graduate of the Univ of Missouri-Rolla with a B.S. degree in Metallurgical Engineering. In 2000 he received a Professional Degree from the Metallurgical Dept at the Univ of Missouri-Rolla.

Over those 20 years he was with Magmont Mine in Bixby, Missouri, Buckhorn Mine in Elko, Nevada and finally the Glenbrook Nickel Operation in Riddle, Oregon.

In 1998 left Cominco American and went into business for himself by purchasing Green Diamond Sand Products, an Industrial Minerals property, located in Riddle, Oregon.

About The SME Distinguished Member Award:

The Distinguished Member Award, established in 1975, is presented to a select few who have distinguished themselves by demonstrating significant and sustained contributions to the minerals industry and to SME. There must be some contributions to both the industry and SME, though significant and sustained contributions can be to either one.
