“For us, the University of Mining and Geology is not only a place for academic education, but also a spiritual centre where we strive to cultivate honour, dignity, honesty and mutual aid. We are a community united by these core virtues. It is no coincidence that the oath each of us takes as we cross the threshold of the university says: ‘I swear to respect our colleagues and help them, to honour and appreciate our teachers, to enhance and protect the reputation of the university,’” said the Rector Prof. Dr. Eng. Ivaylo Koprev in his welcome speech for the guests attending the event. He thanked the donors, among whom besides GEOTECHMIN GROUP were Minstroy Holding, Dundee Precious Metals and Assarel-Medet.
