Mining Equipment & Supplies Retail
There are some professionals that specialize in retail mining equipment and supplies. As you may know, this is a very important business and miners utilize a variety of heavy machinery and tools to dig underground for minerals. This includes substances like gold, coal and copper. If you sell rock drills, mining pans and safety gear, you can make a lot of money in this business. Furthermore, this can be a fun line of work for those who appreciate mining and underground excavation processes. Since miners and prospectors often require mining equipment and supplies in various areas and regions, there are a number of opportunities available.
It is crucial to know all you can about mining supplies, safety gear and equipment when you work in this business. This may require some initial training. You will often deal with construction backhoes, dirt or soil loader machines and various hand tools used for digging. Most of this equipment is industrial grade, made from steel, and suitable to crush through rock. While you may need to assist one consumer with finding casting tools, you may need to help another customer with retail jack hammers. Some of these hammers have hydraulic pumps and piston parts. You may need to explain to customers how to properly use certain mining equipment, supplies and tools. This way when they are digging or drilling for coal or gold, they can stay safe.
In this field, you are likely to deal with a lot of different miners, excavation professionals and underground digging teams.
