NOC 8411 – Underground mine service and support workers

Index

Intro

Underground mine service and support workers perform a range of duties related to the operation of orepasses, chutes and conveyor systems, the construction and support of underground structures, passages and roadways, and the supply of materials and supplies to support underground mining. They are employed by coal, metal and non-metallic mineral mines.

Mobility is possible to other occupational groups in underground mining.

There is mobility between employers within each of the three following sectors: underground coal mining, underground hard rock mining and underground potash, salt or soft rock mining.

Mobility between these sectors is somewhat limited by differences in production technologies.
