About Mining

If you’re interested in the extraction and processing of minerals, you couldn’t be in a better place. Australia ranks among the top five mineral producers in the world and, having contributed over $125 billion to the Australian economy in the last 10 years, the mining sector has offered widespread employment.

Mining is a technologically-focused undertaking and the local industry has been in a position to innovate, offering world’s-best technology to its geoscientists and metallurgical engineers. In fact, 60 per cent of the world’s mines operate with Australian-made and designed software.

Employment figures go up and down according to the market, but there’s no disputing that mining is a major contributor to Australia’s economy. Despite hitting its peak of growth in recent years, mining is still a highly skilled profession and we’re now at a stage where the sector is looking harder for workers with qualifications and experience.

Potential mining career outcomes include: Grinding Operator, Equipment Operator, Sampler, Site Coordinator, Mining Engineer, Drillers, Offsiders, Production Engineer, Excavator.
