International teams to compete at U of S mining competition
The University of Saskatchewan will compete this weekend in the National Mining Competition (NMC) along with teams from the United Kingdom, United States, India, Germany and the rest of Canada.
Organized by U of S students, NMC is Canada’s first mining strategy case competition that brings together business, engineering and geology students to apply their skills in a 36-hour mining challenge.
The competition is being held at the Delta Bessborough, U of S and TCU Place starting Thursday and going to Sunday. The top six teams will present to a panel of industry judges.
“The National Mining Competition is on track to being the most successful iteration yet with a now international presence of prestigious universities and top mining schools attending, as well as a panel discussion featuring Canadian mining company magnates at our awards gala,” stated Chris Chovin, competition co-chair internal, in a news release.
“The mining community in Saskatchewan is incredibly supportive of the competition and we really want to showcase the province as a great place to work to the competing students,” added Cooper Meadows, co-chair external for the games.
