Tonight SGU (Geological Survey of Sweden) awarded Mikael Nyström and Hans Wahlquist with the 250-year-old mining medal Swedish Bergman’s Honorary Mark for “Snille och Flit” (In English: Genius and Dedication), which is awarded to those who performed particularly important efforts within the mining industry of Sweden. The prize ceremony took place at the conference Future Mine and Mineral at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm. The honorary mark was awarded by Lena Söderberg, Director General of SGU.

The jury’s motivation is:

“Hans and Mikael have, with innovative thinking, professionalism and strong commitment, driven innovative and high-tech solutions that have contributed to significantly increased safety and efficiency in the mines. Today, the solutions are not only used nationally but also internationally, and they have thus contributed to strengthening and making the Swedish mining cluster more visible in a way that makes Sweden consolidate its position as a leading mining country.”

Over the years, a total of 85 mining industry persons have received the Swedish Bergman’s Honorary Mark for Genius and Dedication, most recently in 2013 when two women and two men were awarded the medal.
