Hey team, my name is Damo, I’m a dirty old diesel fitter / grubby subby…
I’ve been working in the mining industry for 6 years now, from central Queensland Mt Isa region down to the Bowen basin coal mines, across to the Pilbara and back again. Every roster from 7/7 all the way up to 3 months on 1 month off, spent weeks isolating in WA every time I flew in during covid and the hard borders.
I’ve owe a lot to mining in the way it’s been able to set my life up. It’s also cost a lot in the way of missing some pretty important things in life with friends and family. I believe in that time I’ve learnt a fair bit on how to deal with being on mine sites, the mental challenges as well as trying to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
Just reaching out to let anyone with any questions feel free to tag me in the comments and I’ll try my best to be as helpful as possible.
