UBC students visit mining regions of Portugal and Spain

Each year, the fourth-year graduating class of mining engineering fundraise for a field trip to mining regions overseas.  At this year’s trip to Spain and Portugal, the class visited three mines (one underground, two open pit ), one smelter, two universities, and the historical Rio Tinto mining district. 

For the first time, the group met with other mining engineering students at the University of Huelva and the Madrid School of Mines.
