Members of the men’s and women’s "mucking" teams at UMR will compete in Butte, Mont., against teams from other colleges and universities around the world April 2-3.

Members of the 2003 men’s team competing in the mucking event.

Last year the competition was held on the teams’ home turf with the women’s team placing first and a men’s team coming in second.

The competition consists of teams using old-fashioned mining methods and hand-held tools to compete in timed events, including gold panning, surveying, hand-mucking, hand-steeling, track-standing, Swede sawing and jackleg drilling.
