Millwright

Expert mechanic. Big equipment. Like, really big.

A mining crew is always on the move, and that means their complex, heavy equipment is, too. This is where you come in. Millwrights are highly skilled, precision mechanics who install, move, maintain and repair mechanized equipment located in a mine, often in the processing plant. Duties include troubleshooting, diagnosing, modifying, fabricating and repairing equipment such as cone crushers, gyratory crushers, conveyors, feeders, ball mills, pumps and piping systems. A well-paying career for very, very good mechanics.

Education and training needed: High school diploma or GED; apprenticeship or technical training
