MINING JOBS TV Episode 3: Unskillled & Entry Level Mining Jobs Brought to you by www.miningresumes.com - Kick-start your mining career today and email us at [email protected] or call Mining Resumes on 1300 737 863 Welcome to Episode 3 of Mining Jobs TV. Hi my name is Matt and I will be speaking to you today about unskilled and entry level jobs in the Australian mining industry. Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. You may have probably heard the stories about a friend of a friend who is earning over $100,000 a year on a mine somewhere in Western Australia or Queensland and wondered how you could get a mining job too. Entry level or unskilled jobs, like trade assistants or plant operators are hard to get now as every man and his dog are applying for them. The best way to get these jobs would be to move out to the little mining towns and live there and register with all the labour hire companies, there are hundreds of them. Trades people like fitters, welders, boilermakers and electricians still have a fairly good chance of picking up work on mining sites. If you don't have a trade, doing a rigging or scaffolding course would give you a good chance at getting a job, the courses are only about 4 weeks long, but they are fairly expensive. Other unskilled or basic jobs available include cleaners, laundry workers and kitchen hands which is not difficult if you have hospitality training and experience. Talking to people who are currently working on mining sites can be a big help, especially if you have no previous experience or qualifications. It would be even better if you could get in contact with expats from your own country who are working on mining sites. They can let you know who to call and what you need to do. If you are inexperienced and unqualified you need to be fit and ready for physical labour. The work will be very repetitive and routine based with long 12 hour days, so you really need to be mentally prepared, as well as physically. Some mines will have a very high turnover of workers. This is because many people go to work on the mines not knowing what to expect. Because there can be such a high turnover, you may not start earning big money straight away, although your wages won't be small either. Once you've proved yourself to be a reliable worker, your wages should increase. Most mining companies will run police checks, as well as drug and alcohol tests. Even though there are wet mess areas on-site where workers can unwind and drink alcohol, they do have to drink in moderation and be fit-for-work before their shift starts Shutdowns are exactly what the name suggests. Every now and then mining sites need to shut down for upgrades, maintenance or repairs and they usually hire people temporarily to work during shut downs. A lot of the work is unskilled and doesn't last very long, so it's great for backpackers who want to keep on travelling and don't want to make a full-time commitment. It's also a great way to get your foot in the door and gain valuable on-site experience. To do certain mining jobs you will need to get licences and training, or 'tickets' as they are more commonly known. There are lots of different types of tickets depending on what type of work you're going to do. Some tickets can be very expensive and mines in different states require different tickets, so you really need to do your research before you start spending money on courses. Don't think that just because you're female that the mining companies and recruiters won't consider you. The mining industry in Australia is becoming increasingly gender neutral. It's not just cooking and cleaning jobs either on offer for women either; more and more women are working on Australian mining sites, and in some cases, companies even prefer women for certain jobs. For example, a popular job for women on mining sites is driving a dump truck because research has shown that women are easier on the multi-million dollar equipment yet still get the job done. It's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted via phone on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples browse that demonstrate their quality and experience.

A Career in Gold Mining (JTJS52010)
 
08:00
It's an exciting prospect to go underground, extract rock and process it until you are left with a solid bar of gold but that's exactly what Caleb Lese from Dunedin will find out all about when he heads to Macraes mine in Otago. Heading underground he learns that the 12 hour shifts begin and end with a blast and that the multi-million dollar subterranean digging machines are one of the main tools used by the mine. While these 'bogger' machines can be used by an operator, they can also be operated remotely when the area being worked on is unsupported. Caleb is keen to see if operating a bogger remotely is as easy as it looks but soon learns it might take a little more training to become proficient! At the processing plant, Caleb finds out more about how the gold is extracted from the sulphur rock and how from the plant processing control room around 95 per cent of the plant can be managed. Then it's off to see if there is any gold at the end of the rainbow and to his surprise, the $800,000 bar of gold he holds is much heavier than he expected! There are a wide range of roles within the gold mining industry and much of the training can be done on the job. For Caleb, it is certainly something to think about for his future. Find out more about this, and a huge variety of other careers, at http://www.justthejob.co.nz

#NotMyJobMate- Why A Rise Is The WA Gold Royalty Will Harm Working Families
 
02:10
Western Australia will soon learn the results of the State Government's minerals royalties review. Hear from a few of the thousands of workers whose jobs may be a risk if the Government decides to increase gold royalties. The WA gold mining industry employs more than 20,000 people and pays more than $300 million in taxes and royalties to the Government of Western Australia. That's money which helps to build our roads, schools, hospitals and police stations. It also contributes more than $8 billion to the economy of WA. But it’s more than that. The men and women who work in the gold industry give their time and energy to a huge range of community activities; as volunteer firefighters, ambulance drivers, children’s sport coaches and community leaders. This video shows why the industry cannot afford any increase in the gold royalty. These are the people who will be affected, explaining how important gold mining is to them and thousands of other Western Australians.

Desperate men and children scour underwater mine-shafts in this terrifying report. Breathing through nothing more than a thin pipe connected to an air compressor, going 30 foot deep underwater for hours in search of gold is all in a day’s work for 16-year-old Gerald. "I'm afraid, if the earth collapses, I will get buried underneath" says the teenager. Surrounded by rock walls in the pitch black darkness of the water, the men chip away at walls for 3 hours. They find no gold. For many like Gerald school is a distant memory, and illegally diving for gold the only alternative to starvation. Hundreds of deaths by electrocution, drowning and even the possibility of Mercury poisoning have had little impact on compressor mining activities, which continue un-policed and unregulated. There appears little hope of change on the horizon. "If I could only give job opportunities - I will take them away from compressor mining. It is just that I have no alternative at this point" says Ricarte Padilla, Mayor of Jose Panganiban - Philippines' so-called "Gold Coast". As it is, the children and family men unearthing 60-80kg of gold per month see the lions share of wealth disappear into the Chinese black market.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
 
25:41
More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

Mid of Urquidi climbing out of mine with heavy pack ++DAY SHOT++ 20. Mid of Urquidi and other miner coming out of mine entrance STORYLINE Hundreds of Bolivian women, many abandoned or widowed, have turned to scraping out a modest living in the bowels of the earth extracting gold, silver, zinc, tin, and lead from private and often risky mines. Gabriela Urquidi, 43, is one of them. A divorced mother of four, she earns 60 US dollars in a good week in a silver mine in San Jose de Oruro, central Bolivia, selling the metal she extracts with chisel and mallet directly to Chinese businessmen. "I take the risk to put bread on my family's table. It is hard work," she told AP Television. As mineral prices have gone up, so have the number of women working in and around Bolivia's mines, said Alvino Garcia, leader of Fencomin, the country's federation of mining cooperatives. Most work above ground, extracting metal from mine tailings. Women are not permitted, however, to work in state-owned mines, which are safer and employ the bulk of Bolivia's estimated seventy-thousand miners. Like male miners, Bolivia's mining women don't have much of a life expectancy: it's only about 45 years, according to national statistics. The International Labour Organisation estimates that of the world's 11.5 (m) million to 13 (m) million small-scale miners, 3.5 to four (m) million are women. Urquidi wears a tracks suit to work and a face mask to keep the dust from her lungs as she works underground. When she started in 2003, many male miners made fun of her. She says she has since been accepted. She is one of one-hundred women among the one-thousand who work in the San Jose mine, which was state-run for its first century but has been a cooperative since 1989. They face some resistance from their male co-workers. "Our fellow miners have always been machos and will die machos so all we women can do at the moment is get trained and do the best we can," said Emiliana Reyes, director of the Organisation of Female Miners.

Ghost Towns of the American Gold Rush - 4576
 
54:12
#ghosttowns #goldrush #gold The wildest and fastest American era that ever was... Men left their homes, wives, children, and their jobs, and raced West in a mad rush to find a pot-of-gold at the end of the rainbow. Towns sprang up overnight, along with banks, general stores, boarding houses, saloons, all of which were filled with prospectors, hustlers, gamblers, and outlaws. Some came to mine gold. Others came to mine the miners. Men and women lived fast, full, often reckless lives, and when rumors of new strikes arose, many picked up their stakes and moved on with the possibility of a better tomorrow someplace else. Left behind in their wake were empty buildings and silent streets. This documentary brings to life eleven ghost towns. Some are completely deserted, while others are actually still alive, though, they are operating as unique places that people can visit and witness what a ghost town was like back in the 19th century. It is all here; a collection of anecdotes and history of America's past, gone but never forgotten. A few towns even allow visitors to pan for gold! Included Are: Coloma, CA Grass Valley, CA Murphys, CA Virginia City, NV Sutro, NV Bodie, CA Buckskin Joe, CO Lake City, CO Bannack, MT Vulture City, AZ Mogollon, NM

[Online until: 15 August 2019] "Wild, wonderful West Virginia” - that’s how the small state nestled in the Appalachian Mountains bills itself. This documentary reports on the daily struggle facing local coal miners hoping for help from Donald Trump; a sheriff combating the opioid epidemic that has already claimed thousands of lives; and a Cherokee environmental activist whose efforts have earned her intimidation and threats. The whistle of a locomotive at the front of an old coal train, quiet winding roads, and hardly a highway to be found - that’s still the image that many have of West Virginia today. But beneath the forest-covered mountains lies a labyrinth of tunnels just one meter high, in which miners still spend their entire working days toiling in the dark on their hands and knees. The camera team accompanies a traditional coal mining family as they go about their day. Together with the family’s two sons, Scott and Steven Lockhart, the crew ventures into the mine. Conversations with the miners reveal why people who had been lifelong Democratic Party supporters are suddenly placing their hopes for the future in Donald Trump. But the documentary also ventures beyond the coal mines to uncover the lesser-known sides of this Appalachian state - from snake-handling Pentecostal churches to the bluegrass and mountain ballads of Alan Cathead Johnston. We also speak with Sheriff Martin West, who sued the country’s three biggest pharmaceutical makers for their role in the opioid epidemic that has swept the region. And we meet another person who has decided to fight back: Maria Gunnoe, a young Cherokee activist who has dared to take on the coal barons that are ravaging the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Mid of man pointing to a fleck of gold in the muddy water 4. SOUNDBITE (Zulu) Julius Mthembu, illegal gold-panner from Mozambique: "The strike is over but we have lost our jobs. What can we do? We can't just sit and do nothing, our families expect money from us, and it's December time, children want money for schooling. We have to do this otherwise we will have to steal which will get us killed and we don't want to die." 5. Mid of man rinsing flecks of gold out of a bath towel using water 6. Close up man rinsing flecks of gold out of towel 7. SOUNDBITE (Zulu) Julius Mthembu, illegal gold-panner from Mozambique: "After the striking miners got their salaries, they went back to work, but our contractor told us that the job was finished because his contract had not been renewed." 8. Wide of Mthembu working on the panning chute with a friend Johannesburg - 7 November 2012 9. Mid set up of Peter Mayor, mining specialist in South Africa 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Mayor, mining specialist: "On a macro scale it's probably not too negative for the South African economy because it's creating jobs, it's creating wealth out of the ground and that gold probably ends up getting exported so it even brings in some foreign currency. And so if these illegal miners weren't doing it, probably no one would be doing it." Johannesburg - 2 November 2012 11. Wide of bags of soil 12. Wide of men carrying out illegal panning Johannesburg - 7 November 2012 13. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Mayor, mining specialist: "It's discouraging respect for the law, respect for regulations, for protocol, how to go about getting a mineral property, how to go about extracting minerals from the ground in a safe, environmentally friendly way, and in a legal way that benefits the community and the government via taxes." Johannesburg - 2 November 2012 14. Close up of illegal panner Siphelele Dyasi panning for gold 15. Close up of Dyasi looking for gold in the soil 16. Close up of Dyasi looking carefully at stones found in his gold pan 17. SOUNDBITE (Xhosa) Siphelele Dyasi, illegal gold panner from South Africa: "I will never lose hope, each everyday as I am working, I search for the big one. Although I find the small one, I will never stop looking." 18. Mid of Dyasi and his friend panning for gold 19. Wide of Dyasi and his friend panning for gold 20. SOUNDBITE (Xhosa) Siphelele Dyasi, illegal gold panner from South Africa: "There's nothing you can do, a soldier dies in war. There's no other choice, you go into it knowing the risks, that's how I survive even though we end up growing older quicker because of carrying heavy sacks of soil from the mine." 21. Mid of Albert Hlongo, a 55-year-old man from Mozambique, and his son working together 22. Close up of Hlongo panning for gold in the soil from the mine while his son keep on pouring water into the dish 23. Wide of Hlongo and his son working together to search for gold STORYLINE: South Africa, once the world's foremost gold producer, is experiencing a labour upheaval in its critical mining sector. A violent nearly six-week strike over pay at a Lonmin platinum mine hit profits hard, causing companies to lay off many of their contract workers. Mozambican Julius Mthembu was one such worker who has taken matters into his own hands and started panning for gold illegally. "The strike is over but we have lost our jobs. What can we do? We can't just sit and do nothing, our families expect money from us," he said as he sifted through sandy water in the hope of finding a few flecks of gold. "Although I find the small ones, I will never stop looking," he said.

CEO Clips: Hugh Agro | Revival Gold | 8,000 Meter Drill Program at Former Producing Gold Mine
 
01:39
Hugh Agro, President & CEO of Revival Gold speaks about the companies two principal gold projects. Revival Gold is pursuing growth in gold. We see a growing gap between the pace of global production and the pace of discovery. We aim to address that gap with quality projects located in North America. Our principal projects are the former producing Beartrack Mine and neighboring Arnett Project. We are located in the mining friendly state of Idaho and enjoy all the benefits of existing infrastructure. More than three point five million ounces of gold have been produced and are discovered at Beartrack / Arnett. We have mineralization across five kilometers of trend within the Panther Creek fault. We have one point three million ounces of indicated resource and an additional 700,000 ounces in the inferred category at Beartrack. We are underway with an 8,000 meter drill program at Beartrack and two rigs. We have 400,000 ounces of historic resource at Arnett. We are permitting over 50 drill pad locations and expect to be in drilling with a further 2,000 meters. We expect to release initial drill results from our current drill program at Beartrack this fall. Collectively we have delivered billions of shareholder value over the course of our careers. Last year we were recognized as one of the top five performing gold stocks on the Junior Venture Exchange. We’ve done it before and I am fully confident that we do it again.” – Hugh Agro, President & CEO of Revival Gold In September 2017 Revival Gold announced the execution of an earn-in and related stock purchase agreement with Meridian Gold Company, a subsidiary of Yamana Gold Inc., by which Revival may acquire a 100% interest in Meridian Beartrack Co., owner of the Beartrack Gold Project located in Lemhi County, Idaho. Beartrack is a former producing gold mine that was the subject of renewed exploration activity in 2012 and 2013. The Project encompasses 3,496 acres (1,415 hectares) and hosts five known mineralized areas within a five-kilometer strike length along the Panther Creek Fault. Mineralization is open to the south-west and at depth. The Project is situated approximately four miles east of Revival’s Arnett Creek Gold Project and will serve as the Company’s base for exploration drill hole core logging and storage for both Beartrack and Arnett Creek.
