I wrote a post yesterday about getting a mining job.. And how all the adds were for experienced drivers..So we are going to go with all yall advice and just apply to all the jobs...
There is room to add a cover note.. I thought that may be a good idea! This is what i got so far...
Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my resume. Im looking to break into the mining industry and need some one to give me that chance. Im happy to have drug tests and get a police clearence. Ill also relocate where ever needed. Im hard working and a quick learner.
So is this too informal? Can u help me add somethings??

If it were me...
thank you for taking the time to read my resume. Im looking to break into the mining industry and need some one to give me that chance.
(I am keen to learn new skills on the mining industry and would greatly appreciate you giving me that chance.)
Im happy to have drug tests and get a police clearence. Ill also relocate where ever needed. Im hard working and a quick learner.
(I would put the hard worker part first, then drug test and relocation after it. I would also give a brief summary of the industry you currently work in, ie, "During my time as a *** I have gained knowledge in ***. I am hard working and a fast learner")
Now, keep in mind I've only ever worked in an office environment so I don't know if things are done differently on hands-on industries!
Good luck :-)

My DH is a Project Manager for an engineering company and does a lot of 'hiring and firing'.
His biggest piece of advice as far as applications go, is that most people end up focusing on what getting the job would do for them ... "I'm looking to break into the industry"... "I'm looking to further my career" ....etc. First and foremost focus on what YOU can offer the company.

I would word the drug test part differently, something like:
"I am willing to submit to any drug & alcohol screening and Medicals as required."
I would also add something like:
"Although I do not have any practical experience within the mining industry, I am a quick learner and am looking for a fresh challenge."
And also go to explain how some current skills are transferable to a mining role (eg: any supervisory experience etc)
I would also include a paragraph about being safety conscious and highlight any OH&S, first aid or safety training as most mining companies place high importance on safety.
