Types of Operators

Jumbo Operators: Responsible for handling a single, or multiple boom jumbo drilling rig. These rigs drill in underground mining tunnels and the operators need to be able to clearly understand survey plans and layouts as well as ground support plans. It’s also generally expected that they have a basic mechanic and electrical knowledge of these rigs for maintenance.  

Excavator Operators: An excavator can be any machine used for demolition, excavation, dredging and trenching. They use hydraulics to pull soil into a bucket to move the earth to a designated area or onto a truck to transport it. Excavator operators drive and control these machines to dig or clear foundations or rubble.

Bulldozer Operators: Bulldozer operators safely and efficiently gouge rock, soil and other materials across all areas of a mining site from moving overburden to removing road obstructions.

Grader Operators: A grader is a heavy vehicle with one or two ong blades underneath to create flat surfaces during grading. They fall into two categories, a rigid frame motor grader or an articulated frame motor grader. Articulated frames are more popular in today’s mining sites due to their versatility in smaller spaces. Grader operators handle these vehicles to create flat surfaces, usually for roadways and are relied upon for their expertise in doing so on uneven terrain.
