MSTA CANADA's The Dig Episode 2

MSTA CANADA The Dig Episode 2

The Mining Suppliers Trade Association Canada (MSTA CANADA) is delighted to announce the release of Episode 2 of our new videocast, “The Dig.”

This week we sat down for a virtual chat with Chris McCue, of McCue Engineering Contractors, an award-wining water treatment company, to discuss the ins and outs of being deemed an “essential service.”

In the 13-minute interview, Chris talks about the steps his company has taken to protect employees going into the field, and the many challenges faced during this uncertain time. A few of the issues discussed: securing PPE when supplies were scarce, scheduling work around quarantine periods when working out-of-province, preparing COVID plans for clients and facing the unknowns of working in a remote region.

Be sure to watch the episode to find out Chris’s Number One recommendation for companies who are just getting started following the shut-down.

Launched May 28, 2020, “The Dig” is a weekly news and events videocast from MSTA CANADA that delves deep into the most timely and relevant stories about the mining supply and services sector.  

In case you missed it, the inaugural episode features an interview with Gabriel Janakaraj, Business Development Manager at Ionic Mechatronics, a Sudbury-based company that has pivoted to making sophisticated thermal scanning technology that is being used to control the spread of COVID-19.

This is just one of many examples of how the mining supply and services sector is reaching out with innovative ways to help communities and businesses across the country — and just one example of how the new show will “dig into” important and interesting stories.  

Upcoming episodes of “The Dig” will feature companies that have transitioned their products or services into the healthcare industry in response to the pandemic, and those who are going above and beyond to help their communities. It will also look at industry trends and challenges and how companies in the mining supply and services sector are responding to, and innovating for, the new normal.

“The Dig,” produced by Bryan Bolan, can be streamed at
