In its continuing effort to develop local workforce, Resolution Copper has hired three residents with ties to the region as technical trainees to learn key aspects of the business. Jessica Gerola, Raul Schcolnick, and Edward Gomez began their training program this week. The program runs for six months and all participants will become Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) certified.
Jessica Gerola will be RCM’s administrative trainee. She is a resident of Superior and most recently worked with animals at Caring Critters Veterinary Hospital. In Jessica’s program she will learn Microsoft Office software, front desk/reception skills, typing, filing and document management.
Raul Schcolnick has a strong interest in science, particularly Geology. These skills will help him as RCM’s core handler trainee. Raul will become forklift certified as well as receive competency and task based training. He will also learn the warehouse operations and become qualified on many of the tools found in the core facility. Raul was raised in Superior.
Edward Gomez will work in the Water Treatment Plant. The Plant, which has operated on site for five years, filters and cleans water from the dewatering process of the old Magma Mine workings. Edward will learn the full cycle of a water treatment facility as well as many of the laboratory and best practices used to properly evaluate water processing. Edward lives in Dudleyville.
The objective of the technical trainee program is to build workforce in the region and add to the skill sets needed to successfully develop a 21st Century copper mine near Superior, Arizona. Resolution Copper mine is a joint venture between two of the world’s largest mining companies in Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton.
