:: Renaissance ROM Campaign Receives $10 Million Gift from Teck Cominco Limited

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) announces the largest corporate gift in its history from Teck Cominco Limited to the Renaissance ROM project. This landmark $10 million gift will establish the Teck Cominco Suite of Earth Sciences Galleries, the Teck Cominco Endowed Chair in Mineralogy and the Teck Cominco Digital Education Module in Earth Sciences, as well as create a new home for the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame at the Museum.

"We are proud to join the Museum and the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame in educating students and delighting Museum visitors with the wonders of the earth sciences," said Donald R. Lindsay, Teck Cominco’s President and CEO. “Bringing the Hall of Fame to the new ROM is a natural fit, complemented by exhibits that investigate the link between Earth’s resources and everyday life. The ROM has boldly embraced a philosophy of innovation that resonates deeply with Teck Cominco."

The Teck Cominco gift represents the sixth-largest private donation in the 93-year history of the ROM. The new galleries will be part of the final phase of the Renaissance ROM renovation and expansion project, in which ten galleries will be created in the historic wings of the Museum after completion of the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal wing, designed by Daniel Libeskind.
