Xstrata Copper joined forces with Centacare Employment Mount Isa branch to help train indigenous people for employment in the local mining industry.
The program helps locals find work in the mining industry by providing them with all the necessary skills and information.
Centacare Employment helps the local community develop a career path while also finding them a job in Australia’s biggest industry. With the resources sector booming, employment opportunities are many and varied.
Due to the remoteness of some of the minesites, Xstrata Copper feels a local workforce benefits both community and business.
Retaining a local workforce has helped Xstrata Copper keep abreast of community attitude.
