Mining today is about developing our human resources- knowledge, skills and opportunity

Human Resources

The mining industry provides opportunities for people in a wide range of careers.  Our Job Board connects employers and job seekers, and is a great place to start researching the kinds of jobs and employers in BC that might interest you. There you can be inspired by an opportunity, or just get a better idea of the kinds of skills and credentials employers are looking for.  

MABC works with educational institutions across BC that offer mining-related training and education.  MABC provides advice and information about the industry needs to the NWCC School of Exploration and Mining and the NBK School of Mining Engineering at UBC.  We also offer lectures to classes in mining-related fields from time to time.  To see if there is an opportunity to have a guest lecturer from MABC for your program, please contact
