Mining is a war between unpredictable forces of nature and the human mind. It requires sensible and timely action to prevent loss of life and property. ‘Mine Quizzard 2021’ is a step in this direction wherein a Mega Quiz competition is organised annually to judge the competency of our aspiring mining professionals.
The weekend saw a battle of great mining minds when more than 600 students representing more than 40 universities and colleges spread across various states like Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra took part.
At the end of a one hour long tough contest, five students emerged winners as they scored Full marks out of which three are proud students from Jharkhand Rai University while the other two Ashish Sharma and Prashant Karna are from B.I.T. Sindri, Dhanbad. Congratulations to all!
