Resources for schools about mining

To encourage school children to consider careers in the mining industry the Swedish Association of Mines, Mineral and Metal producers has produced a magazine entitled “Stabilt” (meaning “stable”, as in long term reliability). This is available from their web page, or a copy can be downloaded here.

The Stabilt magazine includes profiles of young persons working in the mining industry, what they do and what education path they took to get there. The magazine stresses the variety of types of work – with over 250 different types of work.
