Report from the World Mining Competition Committee
The World Mining Competition (WMC) is the largest multidisciplinary mining undergraduate case competition in Canada. The WMC strives to provide a world-class case that allows our delegates to demonstrate their knowledge and critical thinking skills to executives from industry-leading companies.
WMC held its Seventh Annual World Mining Competition on October 25 - 28, 2018 in Saskatoon. We were proud to have APEGS as a Gold Sponsor for that event. We would like to thank APEGS for supporting our organization and all the students across the globe that came to compete this year.
Our goal this year was clear: To empower multidisciplinary collaboration and to enhance our delegates’ understanding of the global mining industry through experiential learning. We are happy to say that we exceeded our goals and that this year’s competition was a great success.
This year we had 16 teams compete from 14 different universities from five countries (Canada, USA, Chile, UK, Germany).
We also had 40 industry volunteers judge and speak at the competition and 48 student volunteers at various events.
We take pride every year in the caliber of students our competition attracts and this year was no exception. Our delegates spent 36 hours of the competition developing effective, economic and robust solutions.
Thank you again to APEGS for its support. We hope to see you next year. For more information, visit www.worldminingcompetition.com
