CELEBRATE THE MOVE MINING SEASON 3 WINNING TEAM
Please join us in congratulating Team Mine2Me, the winners of the Season 3 Move Mining competition. Presenting before a live audience and broadcast to viewers throughout the world on Facebook live, this team of three students from Canada — Kwan Fung, Robert Fuerderer, and Retsepile Sello — shared their idea on how to change the public’s perception of mining.
Team Mine2Me presented their plan to develop short, video infographics on YouTube that can be shared on Facebook and on other social media platforms to reach a wide audience. They took home the grand prize of $5,000 for their creativity, hard work and focus.
The support of Move Mining’s Overall Sponsor Komatsu has been indispensable throughout this program.
All five finalist teams from three countries, with members from several more countries, pitched their ideas to the expert judges in the Move Mining live event. Watch their presentations at Facebook.com/SocietyForMining made possible by Newmont Mining.
