Underground Miner



How long have you been mining?
11 years total. Surface and underground.

What advice would you give?
You’re never gonna know it all but you could learn something new every day

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?
Spend time with my son and ride my street bike.

What task do you love most on the job?
Loading rounds with explosives and occasionally blowing them up on shift. Funnest job in mining.

If there was one thing you could change about the mining industry, what would it be?
That miners could post mining related content more to social media to expose our industry to people who know nothing about it. Without social media certain people will never know about this career.
