Geoalcali will be one of the companies responsible for providing training sessions aimed at Navarra teachers of middle school, high school and vocational training in the fields of Biology, Geology, Geography and History, Technology, Scientific Culture, Earth Sciences and the Environment, etc.
The Construction Director of the Mina Muga project, Leonardo Torres-Quevedo, will offer the session dedicated to mining that will take place on April 2. Torres-Quevedo is a senior mining engineer and has more than 20 years of experience in managing large construction projects.
The course aims to increase knowledge about mining, and provide teachers with the means and resources so that they can transmit that information in the classroom.
For Geoalcali, training is one of the basic and necessary tools for good knowledge of the mining sector that also calls for a large part of the most demanded future professional opportunities, related to the STEM disciplines.
The Center for Attention to Teachers (CAP) of Pamplona / Iruña has opened the registration period for the course “Mining, its role in society and its relationship with the environment”. Registration will remain open until March 24.
The course will consist of three sessions:
- March 31, on Geology, taught by Manuel Regueiro, a graduate in Geology, head of External Relations of the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain (IGME), and twice president of the European Federation of Geologists (FEG).
- April 2, on Mining, taught by Leonardo Torres-Quevedo, a mining engineer with more than twenty years of experience in the sector and current Director of the Muga Mine Project, and Alberto Josa, Mining Engineer and Mining Director of Magnesitas Navarras , SA
