Underground Bogger Operator Jobs in Africa

What does an Underground Bogger Operator Do?

An Underground Bogger Operator operates a bogger, also known as a mucker or LHD (Load, Haul, Dump machine). This articulated mining vehicle is used for particularly tough hard rock mining applications. Underground Bogger Operators are responsible for bogging development and production headings and stockpiles to trucks. Tele-remote Bogger Operator jobs are growing in Africa with tele-remote bogging improving productivity due to its automated technology such as operator-assisting automated steering and wall avoidance functions.

Tele-remote Bogger Operators need to be able to maintain high levels of focus for long periods of time and operating tele-remote boggers is an intensive job. Other requirements of the position include:

  • Experience in underground hard rock mining techniques
  • Substantial work experience in the underground mining environment
  • Attention to maintaining safety and being aware of hazards
  • Holding various certificates and licences, which may include certain Driver’s Licences, a First Aid certificate and so on.
