INTERNSHIP DESCRIPTION: The New Mexico BLM Abandoned Mine Land (AML) program is tasked with identifying and mitigating hazardous abandoned mine features throughout the state of New Mexico. The participant will serve as an entry-level field cartographer on a team that identifies and records abandoned mine features on public lands in New Mexico. Mining features will be recorded using Global Positioning System (GPS) tools with ArcGIS software where data are then downloaded to a master ArcGIS file and processed in a BLM database. Most of the survey work is done on foot in terrain that is often steep and extremely rugged. Crews will identify mining related features in a survey of a mineral district where they methodically traverse the area searching for features such as audits, shafts, trenches, structures, prospects, and waste/ overburden dumps. At no point will the participant access or enter mining features while on project or be asked to participate in activities that exceed assumed safety risks associated with recreational access as prescribed in resource management plans of federal agencies with surface management responsibilities and all participants will be required to follow safety guidelines administered by OSHA and MSHA. This position is offered through G.E.M. Environmental NFP in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management where participants will be employed through Aerotek as a Geologic Intern at Arizona minimum wage. The position requires the participant to travel and stay for prolonged periods in a field camp setting with limited access to resources or facilities on unimproved public land.
