In the first of a series of Special AIMEX video stories, we visit a coal mine alongside Multi-Skilled Mine Worker Michael Cowan as he explains what being
a coal miner means to him.
For hundreds of years mines have played an integral role in the building and prosperity of local communities. In the latest AIMEX video story, we visit two such towns and explore how important the people of mining companies are to their local communities.
The modern mines of today recognise the importance of effectively managing the environmental impacts associated. We saw this in action at the Centennial Coal mines we visited in our latest AIMEX video story.
They have developed environment and community policies that allow for continual improvement in the environmental management and performance of their sites.
Meet some of those environmental scientists that manage these important policies and keep our mines on track.
Passion, pride and enthusiasm are all things a miner feels about the work they do. This has been the case for generations and it is still so prevalent for the modern day miner.
While the industry has gone forward in leaps and bounds with technological advancements and safety improvements, no one can deny that risks are still ever present and every miner does their bit to ensure they all go home at the end of the day.
In the final installment of our AIMEX video series we see first-hand the work that is done below the surface and the vital role everyone plays from coalface to power station.
