In late November, representatives from NPK Mining Equipment attended the 2018 Elko Chapter Ducks Unlimited Banquet in Elko, NV. The event was comprised of dinner and drinks, a raffle, a silent auction, and an actual auction with verbal bidding. Barrick, Epiroc, and several other Elko mining companies sponsored tables at the event. Prizes for the raffle and silent auction were donated by contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers and other local businesses throughout Elko, even including local pizza shops. NPK donated two guns and some goose decoys to be auctioned.
Joining NPK Mining Equipment table were guests from Barrick Cortez Hills, Barrick Goldstrike, and Jerritt Canyon. Throughout the evening many excellent prizes were awarded, but the auction that gained the most attention was a live auction for a Golden Labrador puppy which sold for around $1800! While the NPK table may not have been a big winner when it came to the evening’s prizes, the people were great and everyone had a blast!
We look forward to continue building relationships with the community, the mines, and their miners going forward!
