Fortescue Metals Group said today the maiden reserve estimate for the first stage of Solomon Hub in the Pilbara was 716 million tonnes.

“This maiden reserve for the Solomon Hub underwrites the large scale development currently under way at Solomon to support the 60 million tonnes per annum mine plan,” chief operating officer Nev Power said.

The company expected the reserve number to double over time, Mr Power said.

The Perth-based miner had announced earlier this week that it was set to raise another $US1.5 billion ($1.4bn) in debt to help fund its planned $US8.4bn Pilbara expansion, which will triple production to 155mta.

      Hi Tony
      You know the first place to start looking is online. A lot of people are confused about where to start. It starts with research by taking the bull by the horns and do some digging. Visit the mining jobs boards online because your profession is in high demand. I just looked online for you and found dozens of jobs. Here’s an example: Diesel Mechanic jobs in the mines. There are dozens of jobs like this. Make sure your resume is mining focused of course and tailor your cover letter to suit the job requirements and the company. If you’re not sure how to create a resume that get’s you in front of recruiters for an interview, consider having your resume prepared by professionals. For the investment of around half a days pay in your new role as a diesel fitter in the mines, you can invest in a good resume that gets results.
