Mining Engineering- Jobs, Introduction, Definition, Benefits, Required Abilities, Nature of Work, Career & Scope in Pakistan & Abroad
Pakistan is a country with unlimited natural/mineral resources but just like all Muslim countries of the world we do not have trained human resource and latest technology in the field of Mining. Natural resources are useless without having quality human resource and required machinery for digging and exploring oil, gas, coal, gold and minerals. Developed countries are taking the more than 50% of our natural resources just due to their better technology.
