Mill Operator

Where raw power meets raw rock.

This is where the rocks are crushed and separated. Mill operators are responsible for running the mill with minimal supervision to ensure maximum throughput and recovery while maintaining the lowest practical level of consumable material usage. They work with gyratory, standard and short-head crushers, feeders, pumps, screening plants and conveyors as well as dust control systems. They also operate dozers and related heavy equipment. It’s an exciting job for people who love to process raw materials into a valuable commodity. It’s also really cool.

Education and training needed: High school diploma or GED; experience or training in flotation and mineral processing
