Have worked under BMA with Downer Mining. Downer keeps thing simple with a lot of discipline. BMA make a lot of changes to policies and over complicates matters. Over all I enjoy working in the mining industry I have done so with working for OEM,s and directly working for Contractors over most of my life.

Shifts were 12.5hrs. As I was on a traineeship I went through a steep learning curve and did learn a lot. It was not easy at first and re- quired a great deal of concentration to absorb everything. I found it all come together after about 10mths and could really then hone my skills. It was a large prestrip operation with great equipment like the Komatsu 930E,830E and Bucyrus 4400. Management was supportive and if advice or help was needed it was never a problem. There was some really good people working for the company from a wide diversity of backgrounds. The best part is the people of a company and I felt Downer did well in recruiting a people friendly work force in general.
Pros
Accommodation meals and transport provided
Cons
Long hours
