Sorry, a bit of a rude question, but my husband thinks he'd be better off working in the mines, but I don't think he could earn as much there as he does now in his current job.
He has no formal qualifications, no training in working in the mines.

How much do people earn working on the mines?

Is it a job he can do in the mines?
If not if he can get his truck licence..
He's looking at 100k for a WA mine, about 90k for a qld mine and I don't know about NSW/NT etc.

Totally depends what role he will be doing and also whether it will be in operations or construction.
Construction has higher rates of pay, but rosters can be up to 4 & 1 (28 days on, 7 days off) and the work is project to project. There are a lot of construction jobs going at the moment in WA on projects like Solomon, Hope Downs 4, Roy Hill at the end of the year etc.

Depends on the role.
DH can earn over 200k in a mine, we'd rather not have the money & him be at home.

Thanks. Forgot to mention that he does have his truck licence.
He earns more than those figures so now I can go and do this

Totally depends on the job and mine. I know a few in qld for greenies working under ground it's about 100k for first 3 months then 120k until u get more qualifications then go from there. Driving the trucks it's about 100k. With qualifications ur looking at alot more. FIL is on 250k in WA as a fitter and turner. Totally depends. Dh is about to go out there and it's the same pay as he is on now but only works 6 months a year (1 week on 1 week off or 2 on 2 off)

Since he's his own pty ltd, he has a lot of tax write offs. His taxable income is a lot lower than his actual income. He doesn't get any leave entitlements and has to contribute to his own super, but we are a lot better off with him on ABN.
