I really enjoyed my time at FMG Cloudbreak mine. The people were great and the camp was really top notch. I worked in the open pit drill and blast department and we were always busy but had good support networks and resources. It was a little hectic sometimes. Food wasnt to bad either. Definitely worse places to work. Would work there again for sure
I really enjoyed cloud break. Not a bad site to work at and the equipment is brand new. Stores were not really what I expected compared to Rio Tintoretto and Bhp standards but still not to bad.
The crew was pretty good there not to many deadbeats which made the beers after work bearable.
