Mining engineer wages ranked
General managers are the top paid engineers at mines according to a year end study, 2016 Hays Compensation, Benefits, Recruitment and Retention Guide.
The salaries of engineers largely stayed the same as last year.
While there is a downturn with more layoffs planned in 2016, miners still worry about a skills shortage. Three–quarters (76%) of the companies that responded to the survey say there is a moderate to extreme skills shortage with 42 per cent saying shortages are due to fewer people entering the job market in the industry.
