Newmont Mining Continues Long Standing Financial Support for Montana Tech


1/21/2010

Newmont Mining Corporation, one of the world’s leading gold companies, recently presented Montana Tech with a gift in the amount of $320,000. The gift, in support of Montana Tech’s comprehensive campaign, Strengthening Foundations...Ensuring the Future, will be used for the following purposes:

  • Scholarship support for students in the Environmental Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mining Engineering, and Geological Engineering Departments;
  • Salary supplements for faculty in the Geological Engineering, Mining Engineering, and Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Departments;
  • Continued support for the Newmont Lab Director and student research in the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department;
  • Support for the Montana Tech Environmental Engineering Design Team;
  • Montana Tech Library
  • Digger Athletics; and
  • Project Dreams.

“We are delighted with Newmont’s continued support of Montana Tech. These funds will enhance Montana Tech’s ability to provide excellent student service and support to our faculty,” said Chancellor Frank Gilmore. “Montana Tech and Newmont Mining have built a strong, long-standing relationship. We are proud to have Newmont as a Top of the Hill Key Visionary Industry Partner.”

“Newmont continues to step up for this campus. When I sit back and fathom all they do, I can’t help but think about how it all started when I met Newmont’s Senior Director of Metallurgical Services and asked him to serve on my departmental advisory board. Newmont’s contributions have simply gone beyond expectations,” said Courtney Young, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Head.

“Newmont takes pride in supporting the education of the future leaders of this country and the mining industry,” said Marc LeVier, Director of Metallurgical Services for Newmont Mining Corporation. “By giving back to the academic community of our industry, Newmont is planting the seed for our continued success. Montana Tech’s reputation for academic excellence and hard working, dedicated students, faculty, staff, and administration is well known throughout the industry. Newmont considers Montana Tech to be one of the premier educators of engineers and such wants to be part of Tech’s continued success.”
