Stanley Dempsey was formally inducted into the National Mining Hall of Fame on Sept. 24, 2016 during the 29th Annual Induction Banquet in Las Vegas.
Stanley “Stan” Dempsey is one of the most multi-faceted individuals in the mining community. As a geologist, lawyer, historian, author, corporate executive, and investment banker, he put his skills to use championing collaborative approaches to compliance, environmental assessment, and reclamation planning. He was proactive in environmental protectionism. He had a prestigious career with AMAX Inc. prior to building Royal Gold Inc. from the ground up, transforming it from a struggling oil and gas company into a gold royalty business worth $1.5 billion when he retired as Executive Chairman in 2008. Dempsey has given generously of his time and is active in trade, professional, civic, and environmental organizations. He has been instrumental in the ongoing preservation of mining history as a past chairman of the Board of Directors and a long time appointee of the Board of Governors of The National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum.
