GeoProMining provides internship for students

18 September 2013, Moscow

GeoProMining, a diversified international mining group (GPM or the Company), organized an internship programme for students from the Ammosov North-Eastern Federal University (Yakutsk) at its Sarylakh-Surma production complex in Yakutia.

The Ammosov North-Eastern Federal University, one of the nine major universities in Russia, is particularly famous for its graduates in metals and mining disciplines. A group of mining faculty students were offered a six-weeks internship at GPM’s Ust-Nera-based company. Following a detailed industrial safety training the interns practiced how to use and maintain mining equipment under the close guidance of experienced mentors – leading specialists of Sarylakh-Surma.

The university was responsible for the preparation stage – medical inspection and safety instructions. Together with the university the Sarylakh-Surma management developed an internship plan to give the students an in-depth understanding of the profession they have chosen. The company provided overalls and individual protection means, as well as arranged accommodation in Ust-Nera for the internship period. The interns got not only practice but also compensation.

“We are pleased to be part of professional trainings for young specialists. GeoProMining supports education in every region of its presence. This is not the first internship programme at Sarylakh-Surma and we plan to continue this tradition. Like other companies in the region we are interested in qualified personnel and welcome cooperation with professional and higher education institution,” said Alexander Kopyakov, CEO of Sarylakh-Surma and Zvezda.

GeoProMining runs two assets in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia): the Sarylakh-Surma production complex, which consists of the Sarylakh mine and a processing plant; and Zvezda, which develops the Sentachan gold and antimony deposit.
