Red Chris Mine Administration Manager Doug McFee gave a presentation Thursday in Houston about the mine. Red Chris Mine is expecting to start up in August and McFee said they are already hiring. They’re looking for long-term workers as they’re expecting to have an over thirty year mine-life. The planned work force is 270 to 280 people total, working two weeks in, two weeks out. McFee said they are really looking for crane operators who can also run other equipment, and workers with health and safety or first aid. They are getting lots of resumes for heavy equipment operators, but need more for certified trades people, McFee said.
