Cambodia’s mining and oil are expanding and are sure to greatly benefit the country’s economy.
A career in underground mining is waiting for any hard-working young Cambodian – not just those already with special connections.
Having foresaw an increase in demand for natural resources, Kong Sokhorn is currently working as a mining engineer and geological researcher, dealing with metals such as copper, iron and bronze.
The 27-year-old, who graduated from ITC in 2013, said that working in the field requires great commitment, especially in learning about what the observable physical characteristics of a landscape indicate about the possible resources below it.
The work also has the plus of giving nature-lovers the chance to explore the great outdoors. “Lots of the young people in the sector like nature and have a desire to learn from it,” he said.
“Knowledge of mathematics, chemistry and geology are key for success and growth.”
