Swainsboro, GA, July 28, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- All miners know that they love to talk about everything from politics to mining company takeovers and everything in between. These discussions are held in crib rooms, at shift change times and even in local restaurants.
Although the topics are far reaching, the discussions usually take place between close work mates and friends. Rarely do these miners get the opportunity to discuss matters with miners from other regions or states.
Now, these mining topics can be discussed online with the launch of The Mining Blog. The Mining Blog is the latest service provided by miningreference.com (http://www.miningreference.com).
The Managing Director of miningreference.com, Calvin Close has spent almost 20 years in the NSW coal mining industry, so he knows how miners like to discuss matters that are relevant to their work. Mr Close said that, "every time I went into a crib room during lunch time, I would hear these topics discussed - often with real zeal and emotion."
Mr Close added, "I knew by the way these matters were discussed, that talking about them meant a lot to the miners, so we came up with the idea to provide a place for these discussions to take place online.
"Having a place online allows people from all over Australia (and the rest of the world) to discuss just about any topic relating to the mining industry. The discussion is not limited to a person's circle of friends, peers or even the local town. We have removed barriers such as geographical location and thrown wide open the discussions to anyone that wants to participate."
The Mining Blog can be accessed at http://www.theminingblog.com or from the miningreference.com website (http://www.miningreference.com).
miningreference.com is a reference website specifically for the Australian mining industry. It features the Mining Directory, The Mining Jobsite and now The Mining Blog.
The online Mining Directory on miningreference.com has listings for mining companies and companies that supply mining equipment or provide services to the mining industry. It has been carefully compiled to make it quick and easy for users to find relevant information about these companies.
The Mining Jobsite (http://www.miningjobsite.com) is a place for mining companies and recruiters to post mining jobs.
Further services will be added to the miningreference.com based on feedback from its users.
