This skills inventory for mining occupations was developed by a technical committee in Montana to assist in the development of model curricula and to address state labor market needs. The committee included employers from the mining industry, members of trade and professional associations, and educators. The validated task list and defined job clusters are intended to provide information on the type and level of knowledge and skills needed for entry, retention, and advancement in Montana mining occupations. The guide contains the following: (1) Montana supply and demand occupational information; (2) occupational characteristics of selected jobs in the mining industry; and (3) task lists for seven major areas of training in mining and minerals--geology, soils, and hydrology; land reclamation; heavy equipment operators and maintenance; surveying; drafting and computer-aided design; petroleum technology; and occupational health, safety, and materials handling. The document includes information on training time for mining occupations; mathematics and language training time; physical demands; and environmental working conditions. (KC)
