The Camborne School of Mines Association is the Alumni body for the Camborne School of Mines (CSM) which is part of University of Exeter in the United Kingdom. Through its membership, CSMA, nourishes our network of worldwide connections, pushes the frontiers of knowledge through links with past students and enjoys our shared experiences of having studied at the best mining school in the world.
Our office in the CSM Office in the CSM Museum on campus is normally open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Due to lack of space, the bulk of merchandise is held off-site. The administration of finance, membership, orders by post, and external visits/meetings are carried out on Mondays and Wednesdays from home.
Our aims are;
- to endeavour to maintain the identity of the Camborne School of Mines;
- to facilitate contact and foster comradeship between current and past students of the Camborne School of Mines;
- to advance the interests and present the views of past and current students of the Camborne School of Mines; and
- to provide a link between past students and the school and the CSM Trust
We hold regular social and community events in Australia, N. America, Asia, UK and Africa. Each year we host the Annual Dinner and Barrel Match where past students play current students at sport and we celebrate at the ‘Bottle Match’ where CSM plays its old adversary, the Royal School of Mines (RSM) for a black, battered, metal bottle.
