Creating Good Alaskan Jobs



Good jobs are one of the principal benefits mining offers Alaska.

Thousands of Alaskan families earn a living working directly for mines, and thousands more are employed in mining industry support jobs. As important as the total numbers employed, the geographic footprint of mining employment is also significant; residents of more than 120 communities, often in rural areas where few other jobs are available, are employed in the industry.

The social benefits can be far-reaching for isolated communities; in highly disadvantaged, rural areas of the state, mining exploration and development jobs can provide opportunities that simply would never exist otherwise.
