Students tour MCM

13 February, 2018

In today’s world, we see the approach to education steadily shifting from theory to incorporating practical teaching aspects. At MCM, we realized this shift and we aligned our empowerment initiatives to accommodate practical learning through guided mine tours. To this far, at least ten 14 schools with over 200 pupils each, have been hosted on an educational tour of the mine. Great interest being on mining methods and processes. Being able to witness the actual mining process plays a vital role in aiding teachers and students understanding of the mining process. Molopo River Secondary School teacher, Mr Kebonang Motshabi applauded MCM for their effort on ensuring that students are well educated on mining processes. Students also were delighted that they see first-hand what they have only been taught theoretically. Mr. Motshabi further said ‘with or without teaching aids, it is a mammoth task to stoke interest of students in processes of any nature if they have not seen any of it in real life’. Anyone wishing to undertake a tour in MCM should contact the communication section for logistics. Tours are conducted on Wednesdays and Fridays. The application takes 7 days for communication section to respond. Upon arrival all visitors must report to Security office and the SHE induction will be done. MCM takes pride in its commitment to sustainable development through education. While educational tours are beneficial to the school, MCM likewise enjoys the brand promotion and stakeholder engagement. The peak for school tours is usually the months of July and August. Employees, contractors, stakeholders and our families are welcome to request for a mine tour.
