The Brazilian Mining Institute (IBRAM – www.ibram.org.br), represented by its Director of Environmental Affairs, Rinaldo Mancin, visited the Mining Engineering Department of Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), on May 15 and 16. At the occasion, Mancin was welcomed by Enrique Munaretti, PhD, the Department's director, and by the University's faculty. The aim of the meeting was to present the World Mining Congress (WMC), a global mining event to be organized by IBRAM in 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

According to the Director of Mineral Affairs, the visit was part of the IBRAM strategy of intensifying contacts with Brazilian universities that have stood out in the training of mining professionals. The aim of the meeting was to establish partnerships for supporting and planning the WMC.

According to Mancin, the visit was well worth. "All professors praised IBRAM's initiative and offered their full support to the event, including the willingness to take on the technical assessment of the works to be presented, which is very important for the event's success", he says.

The WMC is a global mining event, held every three years, sob headed by a Secretariat with an organization status, associated with the United Nations and based at the Central Mining Institute in Katowice, Poland. The event aims to promote and support, both technically and scientifically, the cooperation for the national and international development of mineral areas and resources; implement a global information network concerning mineral science, technology, economy, occupational health and safety and environmental protection.
