Over the years, Newmont’s Yanacocha operation has provided internships and training to many local students who want to learn about the mining industry at one of the world’s largest gold mines.
A few weeks ago, as their 2015 internship concluded, 22 students who attended the program graduated and are now prepared to start meaningful careers in mining.
Most of the students in this year’s class are residents of Cajamarca and study at local universities. Through this experience they’ve gained greater expertise in the science and business of mining through training sessions the company provided.
The skills the students acquired through the internship program will allow them to work in the areas of Geology, Mine Engineering, Processing, Mine Operations, Mine Maintenance, Materials, Contracts, Environment, Health, Safety and more.
