im hoping to stay here for as long as i can

12 hour shifts and in the 12 hours i work maybe 1 hour, 2 hours maximum the rest of the day im just relaxing and hiding

my boss gives me a days work and i have to make it last a week :lol: so i do 1 or 2 hours work every day to try and spread the work out over a week

 

the guys on my crew have been here 4 months but i only just got here

i got asked to come 4 months ago but i turned it down because i was working in the mines in W.A

looks like i got another 2 months work here but hopefully the company gets the maintenance contract and i can stay here for longer

roster is 5 weeks on 10 days of

company pays for every thing

rooms paid for

cleaning paid for

clothes get cleaned for you

food paid for

traveling to and from work paid for

traveling from point of hire all paid for

you dont spend a cent while your here every thing u make u keep so its all profit

unless u have a trade which they need here you got no chance getting here

the government here wont allow you to hire any one with out a trade which they need because they would rather hire the national locals to help them get work

im here under Intercon engineering ive worked for them in the past so they called me straight away when they had a job for me

Korean own company i would like to head over to Laos gold and copper mine after this

safety laws are exactly like australia but there is no union here so when it rains instead of heading back to the launch room we just find a dry spot and sit there until the rain stops

this place is f***ing remote if you think im on the main land im not im on a very remove island

the island is a volcano krazy mother f***kers are digging into the side of a active volcano looking for gold, i know it sounds bad and scary but its actually very safe i wouldnt be here if it wasnt safe, i even experience my first earth quake it was only very small so they didnt even report it, it was very weird how the ground was moving it was kinda like standing on a skateboard while some one was rolling it back and forward

how much gold is here??? F***ing heaps!!!!! and im talking heaps they say these is more gold here then any where in the world

the gold here is not like gold you find in australia

in australia you will find gold nuggets, over here the gold is very little flakes which have been melted into the rocks by the volcano

they dig up all the rocks put it through a ball mill and it goes through this massive process of exacting and cleaning the finial product is a gold brick

the process is very similar to how they make aluminum i worked in a bauxite mine which is what aluminum is made from and its a very similar process to how they make the gold here

all the power here is made using geothermal power stations

they use the lava from the volcano to heat up the water to make steam which drives the turbine to make power

its the most cleanest way to make power only downside is it only works in certain spots of the world because u need a volcano

 

im missing the very simple things in life such as my girlfriend and fast food ( KFC ) oh and some good viet food right now would be awesome oh and a kabab snack pack

 

there are a lot of mining projects happening all around Australia and overseas at the moment

 

Australia has one of the biggest natural resources supply's then any where in the world without Australia's natural resources we would be a 3rd would country

LNG ( liquored natural gas )

bauxite

oil

fuel

gold

copper

uranium

Do your Aussie taxes come out of your pay? I worked in NZ for a year and got a big tax bill to make up the difference between NZ and Aussie. I knew it was coming but it still sucked.

On the tax issue there are two key factors as to how you will be taxed:

 

1. Whether you are a 'permanent resident' for tax purposes, which is different from PR for immigration.

 

2. The source of the income (as in country)

 

If you ARE an aussie resident for tax purposes, then you get taxed on income from All countries.

 

If you aren't an Australian resident for tax purposes you only get taxed on income sourced in Australia.

 

Obviously there is heaps more detail but that is the TLDR of it...

Do they get worried about workers stealing some of the gold? Like just popping some in their pocket etc.

Nope not at all

There is that much of it here I don't think they care about a few little rocks ending up in people's pocket

How much would one of those small rocks in that photo in your be worth? Just out of curiosity.
