Today, the Honourable Derrick Dalley, Minister of Natural Resources, launched the Women in Mining Career Connections information guide. As the first publication of its kind in Newfoundland and Labrador, the guide is a unique educational tool designed for students and teachers at the intermediate, senior high and post-secondary levels.
“The Women in Mining Career Connections information guide is a helpful tool for students and teachers wanting to learn more about opportunities in the mining industry which is rich in mineral and human resources. In 2014, mineral shipments are projected to be $3.8 billion. Over 8,000 individuals are directly employed in this industry and the majority of the province’s mining operations are based in rural communities.”

The information guide includes questions to consider when choosing a career in the province’s mineral resource industry and personal profiles of female workers. The guide also provides a diverse list of career options and other resources to support women with career and employment goals.
