A survey this week of major mining companies indicates there are more than 1,000 openings in Ontario alone for unskilled, skilled and professional mining personnel. In Western Canada, the coal mining industry reports that manpower shortages this year have forced production cuts. The survey, by The Globe and Mail's Report on Business, showed a major shortage in the professional area-engineers, metallurgists, � ana1 geologists classifications which amount to about five per cent of the 135,000 to 150,000 persons employed in mining. Industry spokesmen indicated the professional shortage can be attributed to lack of knowledge about the field and misconceptions held by students. An executive of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy said that, to the general public, the word mining conjures up a picture of men grubbing in a hole underground, "trapped, claustrophobia, tragedy." The survey found that salaries for professional mining employees start at $9,500 and experienced professionals earn $12,000 a year and up.
