Students Solve
Real-World Issues

1st Place University of Alaska Fairbanks

2nd Place University of Kentucky

3rd Place Queen's University

GOLDSTREAM AGGREGATES, a team of students from
the University of Alaska Fairbanks, won the SME/NSSGA
Student Design Competition in February by creating
a full site design for quarrying a Montana property.
Six teams, including Alaska Fairbanks, were graded
on how successfully and creatively they solved real
issues faced by aggregates operations during the SME
2017 Annual Conference and Expo in Denver. In less
than 48 hours, each team presented their solutions
to a panel of industry judges along with a full reserve
estimate, operational plan and economic models.
The teams also had to plan for last-minute surprises,
including creating new products with reduced operating hours, modified site access and unpredictable
economic outlooks.
Bluegrass Mining and Consulting from the University
of Kentucky came in second place and Rocked and
Loaded Consulting from Queen's University came in
third place.
Iyngaran's Padawans from McGill University, Gobbler
Mining Consultants from Virginia Tech and Mountain
State Mining from West Virginia University also competed in the competition.
"Each team had strong solutions to the problems
and gave comprehensive, polished presentations and
made it a touch decision for the judges," said Andrew
Storey, quarry design manager at Luck Companies
and chairman of NSSGA's Student Design Competition
Committee. "We want to thank the judges who put
in so much time both before and during the competition to review the students' work and provide the
industry-relevant feedback that the students can use
moving forward in their careers. I also want to say
'thank you' to the sponsors, whose funds provide all
the resources that the students have available during
the competition."
Storey added that NSSGA member companies can
always donate time, energy, resources and manpower
to the Student Design Competition. Students' resumes
are also available for judges and volunteers to support
the students with internships or full time jobs.
