Becker Mining Systems AG is proudly sponsoring this year's team of the Laurentian University that will be competing at the Canadian Mining Games 2017.We support the team of young engineering students in their mission to become champion once again. Throughout the past 26 years of competition, Laurentian assembled its finest students resulting in the most victories in Canadian history.

Their captain Daniel Thibert told us: "In the past 10 years, we've secured 3 gold medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze. This year is no different. Our goals are simple: have a good time and compete at our highest level. Laurentian University's record includes 8 gold, 7 silver and 2 bronze place finishes! This record is only possible by generous donations from our community sponsors. Without the continued support it would be difficult to participate in the games."

This historic record gives a brief outline of how succesful LU's paticipation in the Canadian Mining Games has been and underlines the university's outstanding importance in the formation of young mining engineers. Becker Mining Systems AG is actively supporting young mining talents that shape the commodities business of tomorrow.

The Canadian Mining Games 2017 will take place from 23rd to 26th of February. To not miss out on anything make sure to follow the news on our social media channels.
