MinSouth held a successful combined technical and social evening in the form of a Mining Quiz, on Thursday 9th January 2020, at the IOM3 office at 297 Euston Road, London.
Nearly 50 people from across the industry took part, including MinSouth members, representatives of various mining consultancy groups and other mining industry professionals, journalists and students. Ten teams were mustered and the competition was fierce. However, Quizmaster Julian Aldridge, who once again provided the technical challenges, brooked no shenanigans and attempted to maintain order and adherence to the rules!
There were several rounds to the mining quiz,
including verbal questions, picture/logo sheets and commodity price graphs from
2019 where the teams had to identify to which metal/mineral they referred. Educational as well as fun, MinSouth is very
grateful to Julian for compiling the quiz and presiding over the event.
Members of the winning team, Poly 4+1, composed of mining journalists and editors Nia Kajastie, Gareth Tredway, Carly Leonida, Paul Moore and Daniel Gleeson (pictured), each received a framed mining print, while the runners up prize of boxed mineral specimens was awarded to a mixed team of Mark Burnett and Narina Shoreland from AMC; RSM students Max Ralston, Dan Lindsay and Samuel Casement; independent consultant Yulia Cherepanova; and MinSouth stalwart Clive Hallett. The first student team, from Imperial College, were given polished rock ‘eggs’.
The event was generously supported by some of
MinSouth’s existing sponsors, Behre Dolbear, Bara Consulting and CSA Global,
with additional donations to the evening by Knight Piésold and ERM.

With an entry fee of £25 per team and takings from a
mining orientated raffle – for a pre-loved Ackroyd & Best Mine Safety lamp dating
from earlier than 1927, a bottle of port and a lovely amethyst specimen – the
quiz night raised £470 for the IOM3 Members’
Benevolent Trust. The MBT is an
independent, registered charity, run by volunteers, which aims to help IOM3
members, former members, employees and former employees – and their immediate
families – who are in need of support.
Each year, MinSouth supports a mining industry student with a £1000 award. The Quiz evening was also an occasion to present a cheque to the 2019 MinSouth sponsored student of the year, Mr Daniel Lindsay, pictured with MinSouth gold sponsor representatives, Mr Galen White from CSA Global and Mr Andrew Bamber from Bara Consulting.
