Hard Rock Miner



What type of Miner are you and how long have you been Mining? 
I'm in hard Rock mining I started last year in April

What led you to a mining career?
 My dad Albert Draine got me started I worked in construction for the last 4 years mostly doing siding but was ready for a change and I'm still learning but I love it and feel like this is what I'll do for the rest of my life

Do you prefer to work night shift or morning shift?
I prefer nightshift

How do you stay alert and keep safety top of mind?
I think communication with my crew and double checking surroundings and equipment before moving forward is the best way to keep safety in mind looking out for not only myself but the other people I work with underground too

After a long shift, what is your goto meal?
 A juicy steak dinner with mashed taters
