    Condo's New Mining Job!!!!

    Well guys I got the call 15mins ago. I am officially quitting my new mining job for a new one I've just been offered.

    I'll be off the Scrapers and operating large CAT 789 Dump trucks at BHP's Saraji mine near Dysart in Central Queensland.

    http://www.leightoncontractors.com.a...ces/saraji.pdf

    4 days on 4 days off with a **** load more money. (not sure of this as I read something different on the hours like 4 on 2 off 4 on 6 off)

    Ning seems happy as I'll now be home every 4 days not every 7 days.

    This means we can look forward to a happy retirement if the boom keeps going for the next 10 years, although I found a new Calvin Klein sunglass case in the cars glove box today so I think we need to have a little talk LOL

    Hopefully this means we can take holidays to LOS in the next 6 months.

    Was offered 1 Rai land just North of Ubon Ratchathani for 150K Baht yesterday so will have to check it out next time we are over there. Thats only 2 weeks work in the new job.

    Now have to work out how to tell my generous boss that im leaving

    Lets just say I lied on my resume

    I was looking at WA but I think operators in the Bowen Basin are getting paid a lot more. Not only that but your only 3 hours drive from the Whitsunday's

    I think its getting to the stage they are taking anyone, but with the CAT 789 under the belt I should be able to go anywhere in Australia

    I can see 1/2 day either side of my shift wasted on travel / flights and so forth so I'll have to see whether we make the move up to Rockhampton, Mackay or the Whitsunday's and rent out the unit. My only fear is Ning has so many friends down here and to pack her up and move her to a strange city and then bolt off and leave her could be a little scary and could make her homesick very quickly.

    That's good news Condo, did'nt take you long to get your foot in the door and hopefully a better job.


    As far as your boss is concerned, just be honest with him, number one is the most important person in any occupation.


    789's are a great truck and you will find very easy on the operator, after all there is even woman who operate them, how hard can it be 55555555555

    I didnt laugh She said her girlfriend bought them then didnt like them and gave them to her.

    I asked how much did you give her?

    She said $100

    I then asked how much her friend paid, she said $120

    So I shook my head and she knew exactly what I was thinking, at least she didnt lie..... Which is something we have agreed to never do to each other even if it makes the other angry

    Yeah I know, Im stuffed trying to make things happen with life, jobs and renovations, but it seems its all paid off. I managed to post a few times yesterday. I grabbed a carton of Strongbow and sat down on the computer and relaxed. Catching up on everyones movements for the last 7 weeks has been great.
