Case Components and Past Cases
A large component of every World Mining Competition case is an extensive financial analysis. Whether it be M&A, Capital Budgeting or Valuation, every case will involve a very high level analysis in terms of finding a solution. Especially in these cases, judges are looking for which team can back up their recommendations with numbers that tell the story.
Perhaps the most important part in every World Mining Competition case is the logical systems that make every team’s recommendations viable. Mining is an extremely multidisciplinary topic for a case and relies heavily on the engineering component to arrive at solutions that judges can tell will work in reality.
Having a geological perspective and understanding is crucial in the case. The landscape from case to case constantly changes, making it heavily dependent for delegates on whether or not they understand what’s going on in the environment. Various challenges in the case will rely on having multiple perspectives on the same issue!
As mining is one of the major industries in transition, sustainability is the most crucial factor in every recommendation. Being educated on sustainable innovations and technology is an asset when competing in the World Mining Competition. Judges are looking for which recommendation is not only viable, but also has the least impact on the environment!
