As a solution mine, the Southey Project will not require any underground production and development miners; however, they will require employees/contractors from all of the other categories listed. During construction there will be a high demand for trades people and labourers, such as carpenters, electricians, welders, concrete workers, equipment operators, pipe fitters, and sheet metal workers. During operations the types of positions required will include: millwrights, process engineers, electricians, mechanics, and drillers, as well as security, health and safety, and environmental personnel.
Further information on job opportunities related to the proposed Southey Project can be found in the following document. This power point presentation has been used in the public engagement event with Last Mountain Valley Bussiness Association on June 2, 2016.
