Barrick Gold of North America recently donated $125,000 to Missouri University of Science and Technology to update the campus’s mine survey instrumentation laboratory.
“Missouri S&T is one of the core universities that we rely on for quality professional staff,” says Greg Lang, president of Barrick Gold of North America and 1978 mining engineering graduate of Missouri S&T. “I remember the value of the hands-on learning experiences that the university’s experimental mine provided and wanted to help with their need for modern survey equipment.”
Barrick Gold of North America is based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“We are fortunate that Barrick Gold of North America recognizes the role our program plays in providing future leaders to the industry,” says Dr. Samuel Frimpong, chair of mining and nuclear engineering at Missouri S&T. “This gift will help us continue to attract the best and brightest engineering students to Missouri S&T.”
