SA Mines and Energy Journal : June 2009
JUNE/JULY 2009 SA MINES & ENERGY JOURNAL 39 Monax Mining is offering an ul- timate work experience prize for a young student in July. The winning student will join exploration geologist Greg Swain (pictured) on a helicopter flight along South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula to learn about the geological science behind plate tectonics -- the movement of the Earth's crust that causes earthquakes, volcanoes and the formation of mountain ranges and oceans. Terramin Australia Ltd is offering an ultimate work experience prize for a young student in August. The winning student will have the rare opportunity to go underground and experience the world of a working mine at the Angas zinc mine.

We hope to maximise its impact by ensuring that the researched and focused messages are distributed through our communication networks to this target age group. Let's not reinvent the wheel each time we speak to a student about their opportunities; instead, we should all use these online resources, DVDs and competitions to ensure we deliver a consistent message to our future workforce. If you or your company is involved in visiting secondary schools to promote your organisation and your profession, let us know and we will provide you with a toolbox of resources to help. As this campaign develops over the coming months, we will update you on how it is progressing and highlight opportunities for us all to keep involved and to spread the message. Continued, coordinated promotion and engagement with young students will ensure that the resources industry in South Australia has the skills required for the future.
