"We believe that these students are the future of mining worldwide."

The Canadian Mining Games is an annual three-day event. This year, the event is set to commence on Thursday, February 19 and will conclude with an awards gala on Saturday, February 21. This year's participating teams include École Polytechnique, Université Laval, McGill University, University of Toronto, Queen's University, Laurentian University, University of Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, University of British Columbia, and Dalhousie University.

The competition is broken down into three categories which includes a technical competition featuring the Promine Challenge, mine design, mineral processing and more; practical applications, featuring equipment handling and mine rescue, to name a few; and a variety of oral presentations.
