Coeur Alaska Kensington presented a check for $7000 to UAS.
Coeur Alaska Kensington Mine General Manager Wayne Zigarlick presented a check for $7000 to UAS Center for Mine Training Director Mike Bell at a recent Alaska Miners Association meeting in Juneau. The contribution is for tuition and travel to mine tours for Southeast Alaska high school students that are enrolled in the Introduction to Mining Occupations and Operations course that Bell teaches at UAS in partnership with the Alaska Learning Network and the Alaskan Mining industry. “Coeur’s contribution is really appreciated and demonstrates the commitment of the mines in our area to develop a local Alaskan workforce and to help students to understand the career pathways that the mining industry can offer,” said Bell.
