The Barry Eaton Brown Memorial Scholarship is available to min- ing engineering students who demonstrate a need for financial assistance. The company said the scholarship al- lows it to support students of mining. "It's also a way for us to honor the memory and career of our friend and mentor, Barry Brown, a significant influence on dozens of people who went on to make significant contributions to the mining industry," CEO of BossTek Edwin Peterson said. WesTrac Donates Simulator to Teen Learning Center Roy Hill's ROC-Ed Learning Center in Western Australia received a Cat Simula- tor, donated by Cat dealer WesTrac. The simulator will enable students to experi- ence operating a Cat 994H wheel loader. The simulator will also allow students to "explore how their studies relate to real-time operations on a mine site," Jarvas Croome, WesTrac CEO, said. "It's programs such as this that will stimulate enthusiasm among the next generation to pursue a career in mining." The center offers a half-day program for high school-age students that sup- ports classroom lessons on math, sci- ence, geography and business studies. It provides students with the opportunity to experience a busy mining operation cen- ter and corporate headquarters. Separately, Roy Hill reported its part- nership with Mineral Technologies on spiral control automation was awarded $1 million from the federal Australian government. The partnership seeks to develop a solu- tion offering real-time control of the miner's 720 spirals at its beneficiation plant. Karen Andrews, the minister for industry science and technology, announced the award. Roy Hill reported it will match the funds. Students from Kent Street Senior High School, in Western Australia, were on hand for the ceremonial receiving of the simulator. (Photo: Roy Hill)
