Waterton Global Mining Company receives Patriot Award



ELKO – Waterton Global Mining Company, LLC announced today that Jack McMahon, head of mining operations, was presented with the Patriot Award by Gov. Brian Sandoval at the inaugural Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve executive event last week.

Established in 1972 as an office of the Department of Defense, ESGR promotes cooperation and understanding between military reserve members and their civilian employers. The Patriot Award celebrates the efforts made by employers to support reserve military members through a variety of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting necessary leaves of absence.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be recognized by an organization that represents the men and women who serve and protect this great country,” said McMahon. “I would like to thank ESGR and Governor Sandoval for their ongoing support of active military members, veterans and their families.”

“This award speaks volumes to Jack’s character and his commitment to the community in Northern Nevada,” said Isser Elishis, managing partner and chief investment Officer of Waterton Global Resource Management, Inc.  “On behalf of Waterton Global, I would like to congratulate Jack on receiving this great recognition of his leadership in supporting military reserve members and their families.”

This marks the second consecutive year that Waterton Mining has been recognized with an award from ESGR. Its rescue team was bestowed with the Seven Seals Award last year for significantly advancing ESGR’s mission of facilitating and promoting a cooperative culture of employer support for National Guard and Reserve service.
