Miners – Platinum Weekly Ad


North West


Job duties in the mining industry usually depend on the particular segment: oil and gas, metal ores, nonmetallic mineral mining (quarrying), and mining support. For example, coal miners can work in deep coal mines or on surface mining areas, where they are responsible for extracting coal, bringing it to the surface, and transporting it to the buyers. Oil and petroleum workers may work on ocean oil rigs or land-based oil wells. They can be responsible for repairing and maintaining equipment, supervising drilling activities, and maintaining or installing oil pipeline facilities. Miners who work in quarries or mineral mining facilities can use high explosives to expose ores or products, and then use heavy machinery to take the material to a refining facility. Mining support workers tend to focus on one particular area of the industry, such as those who specialize in extinguishing oil well fires.


Most job openings in the mining industry don’t require formal education or training. Most of the skills a miner learns are acquired through on-the-job experience. Some mineworkers may need vocational training, especially if they specialize in a trade skill. Most extraction workers (those who get the products out of the ground) must be 18 years or older and in good physical condition to get a job in the industry.

Work Environment

Work environments for miners can vary greatly depending on their position and industry. Miners in all fields often face difficult, strenuous work environments. Lifting heavy objects, maneuvering through uncomfortable spaces and situations and enduring extreme temperatures can be common. Mine operations often go all day, and workers typically work in shifts. Most workers in the industry work 40 hours or more a week, with few part-time employees.


Miners often rely on their physical attributes to perform their jobs, and being physically fit is necessary. Being able to work long shifts while on their feet, often performing labor that requires endurance and strength is required. Having work-related skills and experience can allow a miner better opportunities as a manager or supervisor, and the ability to lead and motivate others is needed for these positions.
