2021 – 25 Incredible Years - Proudly serving our clients who include governments, publications, suppliers & associations. We help international mining engineering students at the many trade shows we attend.

Our shared prognosis for the current year:
AI managing risk; increased usage of analytics & changing mining strategies will be the three top influential trends. We will need to rethink the above to include growing concerns over consumer awareness, social license and geographic risk.

Consul General Lee McClenny welcomes Lewis & his staff to his residence in the evening, following their presentation at The West Virginia Mission to Canada.

At 2008 MinExpo, Atlas Copco's Torbjorn Redaelli, President & General Manager with Lewis.

Pictured above, Lewis with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and seated, NHL legend Jean Beliveau. The celebration was held on March 29, 2007 in Jean's honour with charitable proceeds to benefit children's hospitals in Quebec. Many thanks to Madeleine Supino, NHL Director of Central Registry-Systems, for a fabulous evening.

Jean Beliveau has represented for me those personal aspects that I have tried to make part of my business career. They include: dedication, perseverance & respect to both clients and competitors. He will always remain a class act who has set the tone; the vibration that comes as close to perfection as I can imagine. Bravo Jean, for your charitable work & resolve to make it happen!

Lewis Bonder with Bob Gainey Bob Gainey served as general manager of the Montreal Canadians hockey team from 2003 to 2010. Another true gentleman & hockey super star, like Jean Beliveau . He has an exceptionally engaging personality & he shared some of his incredible historical hockey career with me.

He played with passion with the team from 1973 until 1989.

He spent his entire career playing for the Canadians in the NHL. He was team captain of the Canadians from 1981 until his retirement in 1989."

Lewis Bonder with Marc Bergevin Marc Bergevin, GM of the Montreal Canadians of the National Hockey League, talks "Stats & Trades" with Lewis prior to start of game against Boston. Marc is pure genius; a superb tactician, former player in the NHL & a pleasure to speak to.

Jean Charest is the current premier of the province of Quebec. He is leader of the Liberal Party. We engaged in a spirited discussion on investment in mining exploration in Quebec. Only about 40% of Quebec's mineral potential is now known. I asked numerous questions on management of mining royalties and mineral titles; why we still support the asbestos industry & why Quebec still does not promote bilingual education in a very changing population mix in the province, that is leaving French speaking children with an extremely poor grasp of the English language.

He couldn't answer all my questions but we shared a friendly yet spirited exchange at the head table. "
