Go down the pub. Buy five pints of beer and drink them. You won't get a job on the mines but you will get some change from $49.00. Or, click the link, get no change from $49.00 and still not get a job in the mines. I know how I would rather spend my money.

Do you understand that it is illegal to offer (or claim to offer) advice to would be migrants on visas and immigration unless you are a registered migration agent? I hope it cost you a lot of money to set up your scam and I hope nobody is daft enough to fall for it. Why don't you get a high paid job on the mines instead of trying to rip people off?

All you promise on the right hand side of your page can be found for FREE on this and many websites, information given by those that have experienced first hand the highs and lows of emigrating... Subscribers will be able to access information on: Before you immigrate... What to bring...what to leave... You and your CV... Appling for jobs... Transporting pets... Australian Rental Properties... Buying a home... Where to live... Australian Schools... Driving in Australia... Government assistance... Working in the mines... Mining Career requirements... How to get started... Buying a vehicle... Living standards and costs The majority of vacancies on offer within the mining and construction/mining industry can be found on the various job websites, eg. seek.com and of course the conmpanies direct, BHP billiton, Rio Tinto, John Holland, Thiess, DTMT, Fleur, etc, etc. To call it a 'Dream Job' is extending the truth somewhat. The conditions for some are unbearable, the hours are exhausting and the pay is, well not so great for some of the trades considering the hours they have to put in. It ISN'T all rosey. To take someone through a load of BS, then ask them to register at a cost of $49.90 is somewhat deceiving. If it is true you donate to the fund, why not be totally upfront and put this on the first page so people know from the word go it is going to cost them money, but is going to a good cause. I know the widow who is raising awareness and donations for the fund, it will be easy to verify your claim of donations.

There is a perception that you need some sort of inside info to get a mining job. The fact is, it is like getting any other job. If you are qualified and experienced you will stand a better chance. You can get all the two day tickets you want (truckie, forkie, blue card, first aid etc.) but they will not equate to experience or a degree. For example, Perth is full of truckies with years of experience hauling large loads over long distances and many of them would love to drive haul packs up north. If one of those jobs comes up it will go to an established, experienced truckie and not a new migrant who has done a training course. Tisme may be wrong about the info you offer being available for free because like me, she has not paid the $49.90 to unlock the secrets that you promise to share. However, if anyone wants free info about WA resources jobs, send me a PM.

I appreciate every one will have their own views. I also appreciate some people will be skeptical. What I DONT appreciate is people like yourself who will take the time to vocalize their views based on their own biased opinion and not on the facts. The facts are Yes there are thousands of website claiming to guarantee employment.. We do not. There are also websites with false and misguided claims about the ease of gaining employment in the mines.. Yes working in the mines is hard work with long hours... but you get paid accordingly. That is why most people are prepared to make the sacrifice. You obviously are not..... Thousands of people have made the move to Australia thinking they will simply apply for a job and be living the dream and now are the problem of the Australian welfare system. Our website does not mislead. We give the facts and warnings. We give people the information they need to significantly improve their chances of finding a career in the mining industry whether they have skills or not. There are so many options for everyone whether you have skills or not. You obviously do not... You are and have been commenting on our website content but you have not paid the fee or subscribed to see the information are discrediting. If you ever decide to drag yourself off the barstool or away from your laptop and work for a living you are more than welcome to subscribe to our site and educate yourself with the facts based on experience. As the saying goes... Sometimes it is better to say nothing and appear ignorant rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt. The Aussie Miner

Personal attacks show a lack of intelligence. Your quote....... If you ever decide to drag yourself off the barstool or away from your laptop and work for a living you are more than welcome to subscribe to our site and educate yourself with the facts based on experience. I have worked and lived within the mining/construction enviroment for 18 years, living and working in some very remote areas as well as some of the more populated areas. There isn't much I don't know about working and living within the industry. Maybe you should heed your own advice..... As the saying goes... Sometimes it is better to say nothing and appear ignorant rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

So how many years exactly have you been working in mining? Did you give up selling concrete garden ornaments online to become a mine worker or do you still sell garden art as well? The site is owned and run by Art@Altitude. Website http://www.artataltitude.com/ As that site was set up in 2010 in New Zealand, your experience in Aussie Mining would appear to be fairly recent. If you are an honest business person, how come you are not paying to advertise on this site? Does Rio Tinto know that you are using a link to their website to try and make your site appear legitimate. No recruitment agency charges applicants up front. I know you don't claim to be a recruitment agency but your blurb tries to give an impression of a legitimate body with contacts and inside knowledge. BTW, I have a job thanks. (In resources, good money, Perth Based).

I have been reading the comments back and forth and had to put my ten cents in. I would have to agree that it,s distasteful that u are charging for information that one can easily get on the web. Secondly I am appalled that aussiemove has not removed your link. It,s similar to the oil industry scam as well. I suggest u get off your barstool and apply for a job instead of scamming innocent people. If I recall today tonight had a story about such websites. Bottom line mate, no one without skills wil even get a visa for a mining job in australia. You have to be senior management with a degree to be able to get sponsored a job in the mines to australia. So please state the true facts, I have lodged an complaint to today tonight and current affair.

The Aussie Miner (AKA the Kiwi Garden Ornament Maker) seems to have gone very quiet. Maybe he is counting all of the money he has made from his invaluable advice.
