ICL Boulby welcomes Camborne School of Mines Student – Alex Nathan

Earlier this month we welcomed to ICL Boulby, Alex, who is a current student at Camborne School of Mines, working hard towards gaining a Masters in Science (MSc) in Surveying and Land/ Environmental Management. Being a graduate from Hull University gaining a 2.1 in Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Geology, his objective was to secure a placement within ICL Boulby over the summer period, which is a 12 week placement within the Geology department with Nick Atton and his team. This placement will give him the relevant experience and skills required for him to pursue his ultimate goal of becoming a Surveyor in Mining and Environmental Management.
