On September 4th the last group of students begin the Hard Rock Mining program at Northern College under Glencore’s Kidd Operations.

Then in November when they graduate from the 12 week program, Tahoe Canada will run the program from that point on.

Tahoe has been named Northern College’s new partner with the Hard Rock Mining program at the school.

Tahoe, Glencore and Northern had an official “Passing of the Torch” ceremony last Thursday to mark the changeover.
