Tye Burt, chief executive officer of Kinross Gold Corp, said: "There is huge demand for skilled engineers, geologists, pipe fitters, welders, technical people, right across the natural resources industry." He added that workers are "enjoying high wages" in the industry at the moment and it is "hard to see that changing soon". It has also been revealed that in Canada there will be around 1,200 geology graduates to fill 9,000 positions this year.

In related news, Bill Gates recently called for the US government to boost US immigration by allowing more foreign workers enter the country.
