Developer of the Year

Lukinuk Family at Amethyst Gift Centre 

Steve Lukinuk & Family were awarded the 2015 Developer of the Year Award by the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association (NWOPA). The Developer of the Year award is an annual award meant to acknowledge an outstanding mineral development.  NWOPA recognizes the success of Amethyst Mine Panorama and Mr. Lukinuk’s efforts over 35 years to promote and develop the amethyst industry in Northwestern Ontario.  The Lukinuk family own and operate Amethyst Mine as a tourist attraction that educates and informs many visitors each year as well as providing outstanding dig-your-own opportunity.  They also have developed a year-round lapidary workshop, in the City of Thunder Bay which produces an array of quality Amethyst products.  Lukinuk says, “I try to come up with one new product every year. We have developed carvings, faceted amethyst, polished clocks and jewellery – all mined by our family and all exclusively sold at Amethyst Gift Centre and at the mine.

Amethyst Mine Panorama opens for 2016 on May 15th. Steve Lukinuk looks forward to interacting with mine visitors each day and anticipates another busy and successful year.
