I need assistance to choose
Mineral Processing Operators will assemble and dismantle equipment and fittings in ore-processing plants and will operate ore-crushing and screening plants using manual and computer-based systems, conveyers, feeders, weight-meters, grinding mills, pumps, jigs, spirals and flotation cells. They will load, unload and store materials such as treatment chemicals and tools and will mix ore-treating chemicals, catalysts and reagents. They will supply and control molten metal in furnaces and will clear blockages in materials-handling and transporting equipment. They will clean, wash and maintain equipment, and remove spillages and rubbish and will maintain auxiliary systems, such as drainage, fluid-pouring and conveyor-belt systems. They will take samples of materials for testing and will use thickeners in the treatment processes, pump tailings and manage tailings dams and associated raw-water systems and will monitor the operation of plant and equipment and ensure the safety of other workers.
