Our volunteers are an integral part of the Central Deborah experience, we have volunteering positions available which are both fun and rewarding:

  • Surface Tour Guide: Encourage visitors to explore the surface of the mine. Answer questions, demonstrate equipment, and assist underground mine tour guides with ‘kitting up’ groups. 
  • Underground Maintenance: Assist with underground mining maintenance, including routine safety checks and upgrades. 
  • Mine Surface Museum Maintenance: Get your hands dirty assisting with general maintenance of the mine’s surface museum displays, machinery and buildings.
  • Archivist: We have hundreds of historical items and documents that need to be preserved and added to our online database.
  • Groundskeeper: Help us with yard work and light maintenance.

In the words of our current volunteers:

“I love volunteering here, it is a great working environment with friendly and helpful staff.” – Marianne, Volunteer Archivist.
