Mining tasks for two people working a 10-hour day can be divided efficiently to maximize productivity while minimizing fatigue. Here’s a breakdown of tasks for the day:

1. Excavation Team (Two People):

Digging: Assign one person to operate the excavator or heavy machinery (if available) for more substantial excavation, while the other person uses shovels and picks for detailed and precise digging.

Transporting: The person operating the machinery or using shovels should load the excavated materials into a designated container, such as a wheelbarrow or cart, while the other person transports the loaded container to the sorting area.

Safety: Both team members should prioritize safety by ensuring proper use of equipment, wearing safety gear, and reporting any safety hazards to the coordinator.

Task Schedule for the 10-Hour Day:

Hour 1-3: Focus on excavation. The machinery operator and the shovel/pick user should work together to dig efficiently.

Hour 4-5: Transportation and sorting. One person transports materials while the other begins sorting.

Hour 6-8: Continue excavation while maintaining a steady flow of transported materials for sorting.

Hour 9-10: Conclude excavation and focus on sorting and documentation.

This schedule provides a balance between excavation, transportation, sorting, and safety. It ensures that both team members have opportunities for rest and can maintain productivity throughout the 10-hour day. However, it’s crucial to adapt the schedule and tasks based on specific circumstances, equipment availability, and the nature of the mining site. Regular breaks and hydration should also be incorporated to ensure the well-being of the team.
