Metallurgist

A job humans have done for 9,000 years. Now it’s your turn.

The whole reason for a mine is to find and extract the metals that make nearly everything in our modern world possible. Metallurgists extract and refine valuable materials from raw ore using sophisticated processes and new technologies. They also work to protect and restore the environment and monitor processing in the mill to maintain or increase production. They are responsible for mill metallurgical accounting practices and the review of daily, monthly and annual metallurgical reports. If you love metal, there’s no other job that will make you happier. (Except maybe lead guitar for Slayer.)

Education and training needed: High school diploma or GED; Bachelor’s degree in metallurgy
