A Friendly Greeting
from Mongolia!

A client and friend who participates in our annual Resource Industry Calendar Photo Contest shared a photo from across the world.

We met Dan while working on the EHS Management System at Centerra Gold’s Boroo Gold Mine.

The photo displays a number of traditional Mongolian items, and Dan was gracious enough to take this photo and explain the symbolism behind each item.

Thank you, Dan for your continued support!
