Ramelius Resources, like many mining companies, participate in the vacation (VAC) student program which provides university students with hands on work experience during the summer. Students studying engineering, metallurgy and geology are encouraged to take part to gain valuable workplace skills and exposure to their specialist area. The VAC program also gives companies the opportunity to employ students they know are experienced and capable once they graduate.
