The WASM Wombats and WASM Wallabies competed in 40th Intercollegiate Mining Competition at the Camborne School of Mines in England over the weekend, with the WASM Wombats Women's team winning for the first time in Mining Games history.
The Ausdrill Wombats came a close second overall to the hosts, while both Wallabies teams beat their personal best results, and the WASM Alumni team placed as the overall winners of the competition.
The WASM Wallabies will compete in the Intercollegiate Mining Games Competition (ICMC) in Montana next month thanks to proud sponsors in the community including Ramelius Resources and Gold Fields Australia.
Commonly known as the Mining Games, the competition was established in 1978 in memory of the 1972 Sunshine Mine disaster in Idaho. The annual event honours the fallen miners from around the world and highlights the need for a continued focus on protecting the lives of every person working in mining. Each year students from mining schools across the globe compete in the ICMC.
