Mine Surveyor

University Qualified

Mine Surveyors are involved in mining operations from inception to completion. They assist with the processes of determining the economic viability of potential mine sites, managing and developing sites, and mapping and recording the extent of mineral extraction. Once a mine has been exhausted, they work with other professionals to restore the land and provide advice as to how waste material should be disposed of.

Throughout the course of their work, Mine Surveyors make a significant contribution to the safety of a mine, and those who work on it, through accurate assessments and careful management of data collection.

Mine Surveyors are good at maths and have an interest in geography and the sciences. They also have good organisational and problem-solving skills and enjoy working outdoors as well as indoors.
