This mine has a lot of geological challenges. The coal seams are dipping steeply that blasting cannot be done to a level horizon. Give more challenges on planning and designing fronts.
Pros
Good Team
Cons
Not enough engineers

Great team of engineers to work with. The site has great challenges that make the role interesting everyone. HR systems are not that transparent. Since Anglo is a multinational company, a lot of stages are involved in procurement and other approval processes.

This was a project contract role which lasted about 22 months. I spent a lot of time travelling to site and visiting the subcontractor SRO in Barnsley Newcastle. Work was generally satisfying along with long hours and camp accommodation.

Building relationships with fellow project workers was important to keep moral up and survive the long hours and travel required to complete the project.
Pros
Good pay and reasonable conditions
Cons
Long hours and remoteness from home creature comforts.

Would include data entry, filing, organising and updating anti trust compliance, I learnt to work independently and to a timeline. I had a lot of support and the co-workers were great. An intense but enjoyable atmosphere. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with different departments and taking part in fundraisers.
Pros
Fundraisers

First thing would be prestart meeting with a safety share before the crew would head into the pit for the day. Was lucky to work in all areas of the mine from pit set up and haul road construction right through to coal stock pile coal feed and rejects, also including dozer push for draglines to rehabilitating old pits working on digger floor clean up and dumps, always have great working relationships with all of the people i work with, from the first day i started in the mining industry i knew that it was what i wanted to do for the rest of my life and i put 100% into all my work remembering safety comes first.
Pros
Rosters, team work, feeling of achievment, machine operating, great life.
Cons
long hours, time away partners and family
