Ok I have just been offered a drillers offsider position and I can choice either surface or underground.
Just wondering if anyone here has any experience in the drilling industry.

Both positions are fifo, 2 and 1 roster and pretty similar pay. (underground slightly more)

i had this a few years ago(not with drilling). experienced in open cut and thought about u/g but thought for only $2 difference why go down.they preferred i stuck with open cut anyway. from what ive seen it looks like a very phsyical job and you would sleep well at night. what sites are available?

If you have the choice, don't go underground.

Personally, I would tend to take the advice of people who have actually worked underground, as opposed to people sitting behind a monitor...

Yeah dont worry I don't make big decisions from info on the net lol, after speaking to people that work underground seems if your with the right company at the right site its well worth it but as I am unsure where I would be located id prefer to stay on the surface.

Aren't we all.

I missus' dad and mum both work in the resource industry
Mum is at perth mint gold refinery
And the dad is up on some three rivers site.

Only reason I haven't been able to work up there is due to not having any of the needed qualifications.

depends what you wanna do. if you want to drive trucks then prob not. but if your on the tools/driller etc then you should be ok. some places will organise cops to come to site when they have a group of people who need HR. maybe get HR learners permit to show your interested?
