This is Mine Life


Mine Life

Ontario's mining and related sectors offer a wide range of exciting career options - jobs that involve fulfilling work, high salaries, as well as opportunities for advancement, adventure and travel.

Hear about the exciting adventures from the people on the (and under!) ground.

Meet April

She always knew she wanted a career that would allow her to live an adventurous lifestyle - both on and off the job. April studied geology and jumped into a career in Ontario's mining industry. At the age of 26 she purchased her own home on a beautiful lake ten minutes from the mine and twenty minutes from town, Kirkland Lake. April spends half her days 5,000 feet underground - 4 CN Towers deep under the earth - chasing veins of gold. This. Is. Mine. Life.

Meet Hayden

Graduating from Queen's University, Hayden knew he wanted a career that would allow him to be outdoors and have lots of time for travel. As a drill and blast engineer, his two-week rotational schedule has allowed him to take trips to Honduras, Alaska, Botswana and all-around North America. As Hayden says, "This is a pretty cool way to see the world." This. Is. Mine. Life.

Meet Natasha

Natasha's adventurous personality led her somewhere surprising. She "accidentally" fell into mining and has never looked back. Nine years at Macassa Mine has allowed her to support site operations sustainably and efficiently, while preserving its pristine surroundings. After all, it's her community and home, not just her office. This. Is. Mine. Life.
