Blytheweigh Attends the 40th Annual International Mining Games
Over the Easter break Blytheweigh (“Bw”) travelled down to Cornwall to watch teams from mining schools all over the world competed in the 40th Annual International Mining Games. This year the games were hosted by CSM and held at the historic King Edwards Mine in Camborne, Cornwall. Over 350 competitors from seven countries battled it out in several events, which included the truck and shovel, log saw and track laying.
The Event was held over four days, with the first being a warm up, the second the co-ed and women’s competition, the third, the men’s competition and the final day was the individual competition and award ceremony.
After the four days of gruelling competitions CSM’s team Sandvik and Women’s A’ both came first in their respective competition. Whilst the Bw team did not enter the competition this year, it was great to support the teams, as well as catch up with students, lecturers and Bw interns alike.
The event gives mining students from all over the world an ability to socialise and network with sponsors and students alike, starting global relationships that could last a lifetime.
Bw was thrilled to be sponsoring the event and was equally delighted to be joined by its clients’, and fellow sponsors, Central Asia Metals, Strongbow Exploration and Cornish Lithium.
Tim Blythe, Chairman of Bw, commented “It was an honour to sponsors and attend the 40th Annual International Mining Games, it’s a great occasion and one we hope to be connected with for many years to come.”
