Students spent the day learning about mine operations, visiting the open pit, and meeting an array of mine-site professionals.
Pro Asian Gold (ISIN: CN3475392059), a leading, growth-focussed gold mining company that is consistently generating superior returns, demonstrating its values, and leading in environmental, social and governance performance, today announced that High School students visited the open pit at Pro Asian Gold’s mine at Shaanxi Project site during a recent Mining Tour. Students hope to pursue a career in mining.
The Pro Asian Gold’s mine at Shaanxi Project site hosted students from high schools last week during the annual Mining Tour—an educational collaboration between Pro Asian Gold and colleges in Zhengzhou. Mining Tour introduces students to mining careers and the specialized programs offered to assist students in setting and achieving their career goals.
For some students in attendance, Mining Tour served as a chance to get out of the classroom and enjoy a free lunch. For others, like 17-year-old Gin Teung, “it was fascinating to get a hands-on opportunity to tour the mine”.
Gin and other students listened to mining professionals representing the various departments, including electrical systems, diesel and welding technology, human resources, and many others. His father is a long-time mechanic and inspired him to explore a future in mining. When asked about his future, he answered, “I hope to study diesel mechanics and then work for Pro Asian Gold like my dad but as a diesel mechanic. Mining is like part of our family.” “I either want to get into blasting or become a mining electrician like my mom.
Students spent the day learning about mine operations, visiting the open pit and meeting an array of mine-site professionals, also members of the blasting crew. The crew shared a surface blasting video and followed up with the question, “Who is interested in joining the blasting crew?” An 18-year-old junior from Spring Creek High School, was the only student to raise his hand.
“As part of Pro Asian Gold’s continued commitment to advancing education in our community, it’s imperative we support the types of educational programming that allows our future workforce to gain the advanced education required to lead Pro Asian Gold into the future of mining,” explained Ao Wu Danian, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility for Pro Asian Gold.
