Higher National Diploma in Mining

Mining is literally a booming industry. It is the extraction of valuable minerals and geological materials from the earth’s ore body deposits, seams and reefs, which forms the mineralised package of economic substance and use.
At Zimbabwe School of Mines we produce technically competent, environmental and safety conscious mining technicians who meet mining industry standards and requirements, and provide skills acquisition and development opportunities for the mining personnel.Mining Technicians are hands on practitioners at all stages of a mine project. Before a new site is developed, they assess its viability and assist with planning the mine’s structure. They are responsible for production and development at a mine. Mining Technicians identify and manage resources required to operate at full production at an optimum cost. They are an integral part of the team responsible for mine closure and rehabilitation.
