I get asked quite a bit about what I do for a living since i make alot of references to being out in the pit or rotating shifts etc...
I work at an iron mining operation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, providing high voltage electrical support to mining equipment and also support motor control systems, motors, programmable logic controllers etc.... its demanding for sure but its a pretty cool job.
I got a DVD from the HR dept when I first hired in and I had it for a while. I was looking over it yesterday and thought it would be pretty cool to post it on my You Tube channel.
It gives you the "nickel tour" of the operation and explains the mining process that supplies our American steel industry.
Thought you might like it, pretty interesting.
BTW, to really understand how big those trucks are, remember that the tires on the 240 ton units are about 14' tall.
Click here and enjoy....
Extra note...I did NOT make this video, it was produced by the public relations dept at the mine... I am not in it at all.
