Travelling in Canada: Students of TU Freiberg at international competition in Saskatoon
The Freiberg team around Georg Meißner (geotechnics and mining) Franziska Kiesewalter (industrial engineering), Robin Neuber (business studies for resource management) and Richard Habbel (geotechnics and mining) travelled from Dresden via Toronto to Saskatoon for the four-day international World Mining Competition.
The main component of the Mining Competition is a 36-hour case study on a selected mining project. Among other things, the technical feasibility and the commercial steps from processing to delivery to the customer are evaluated by a jury.
After the competition, the students embark on an excursion to Vancouver. They visit sponsors, get to know the Canadian mining industry on field trips and exchange ideas with universities and local business representatives.
