Mining

Mining is a small but important industry. Mining covers the exploration and extraction of minerals, oil and gas. Jobs are mainly in Queensland and Western Australia and are in regional areas like Gladstone and the Pilbara, but can also be in very remote locations. To work in Mining you generally need to study after high school, with VET a good option. Some jobs vital to the Mining industry, like Mining Engineer or Geologist, need a university degree.
