THREE graduates have successfully completed projects at a national mining company thanks to the support of a Camborne-based organisation.

Adam Winpenny, Matt Walsh and George Scott were all employed by Mine Searches UK and supported by Unlocking Potential, which operates at Camborne College.

Unlocking Potential places graduates with businesses in Cornwall to undertake specific projects and offers support to help career prospects.

Andy Peters, Unlocking Potential business development manager, said: "Adam, Matt and George have produced some amazing results in the space of a year.

"They have worked independently but at the same time they have created big cost and time-savings for the company.

"The success of their projects has also meant Mine Searches UK has now been able to take on a further three graduates under Unlocking Potential."

Examples of the graduate's work include creating software and carrying out surveys.

Paul Raglan, managing director of Mine Searches UK, also based in Camborne, said: "The time-savings have revolutionised the way we're working and already saved us tens of thousands of pounds; the graduates' work has been transformational."
