UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 16, 2017. Russian Copper Company, Metso, and Outotec presented their up-to-date mining equipment and technologies to students of Magnitogorsk State Technical University, the company press service reports.

The college held yet another Career Day sponsored by Russian Copper Company on May 12, 2017. Over eighty students in their third, fourth, and fifth year of studies had the opportunity to get first-hand information on the advanced fossil extraction and processing technologies.

The West’s leading manufacturers Metso and Outotec displayed their equipment and made a presentation on both their appliances and the way the equipment got fine-tuned at the nearby Mikheyevsky Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise, the way the start-up and commissioning jobs were carried out, and the way the local workers got trained to operate the equipment.

According to MSTU Mining & Transport Institute’s Director Sergey Gavrintsev, cooperating with Russian Copper Company is something the college appreciates greatly, as training good quality specialists is impossible without the enterprises’ help.

‘Just like you can’t learn to drive from a textbook, you can’t learn about mining only by reading about it. It’s important to see how an actual production site operates,’ he said.
