Women in Mining

‘‘The biggest problem is a lack of well-trained personnel, especially hydrogeologists. In this country, this profession is not in high demand due to lack of understanding of its importance, especially in the mining industry. We need to raise the prestige of this profession, to train highly specialised mine hydrogeologists who know the specifics of mining, understand the processes taking place in the rock massif and who can correctly assess the risks associated with groundwater.’’
