Award for NLMK top manager

By resolution of the Russian Government, Alexander Gorshkov, Vice-President of NLMK’s Iron Ore Division and Director General of Stoilensky GOK, has been granted a Government Science and Technology Award for 2008. The document was signed by Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia.

This prestigious award acknowledges Mr. Gorshkov’s contribution to development and implementation at Russian mining companies for an automated management system for “Karier” mining and transportation facilities.
