Quarrying & Mining Magazine

Losing a respected veteran

George photographed at home in 2011 for Q&M.

The team at Q&M magazine and Contrafed Publishing express their condolences to George Cunningham’s family and friends.

George made a significant and very valuable contribution to the industry over his long and successful career and was also a regular, and respected, contributor to Q&M magazine.

I will miss George’s regular calls to talk about story ideas, or to simply to have a yarn about all things aggregate and extraction.

If I learnt one valuable lesson from George in the endless battle to have our industry recognised with the respect it deserves – it was, ‘there is strength in unity and defeat in anger’. He ora te whakapiri, he mate te whakatakariri.
