TUCSON, Ariz. (February 11, 2019) –Sundt Construction, Inc. (www.sundt.com) recently was honored with the Industry Partnership Award from the Mining Foundation of the Southwest at the 36th American Mining Hall of Fame Awards Banquet in Tucson, Ariz.
“Sundt is honored to be recognized by the Mining Foundation of the Southwest as a key mining industry leader and partner,” said Clint Sundt, Business Development Manager for Sundt’s Industrial Group. “Together our organizations work to enlighten the public’s awareness of mining, promote the values of the mining industry, honor mining’s past, and ensure mining’s future.”
