Engineer graduate jobs may be created in Devon

Published: Monday, 31 January 2011   Category: Science, Engineering and IT

Around 200 engineer graduate jobs could be created in Sparkwell in Devon, following the approval of a new mine.

According to the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Gazette, Wolf Minerals LTD has received permission from Devon County Council and the UK secretary of state to modify the mine.

The firm's tungsten and tin project has been given final approval, meaning that 200 jobs will be created.

These could be engineer graduate jobs, as the company may need people to look into ways of extracting the metal.

It has been given permission to mine the area until at least 2021.

Humphrey Hale, managing director of the Australian company Wolf, told the news provider: "This updated approval is not only a key milestone for Wolf, but also demonstrates the support for the project from UK authorities."

Science and engineer graduate jobs may also be created by the new high-speed rail link between London and Birmingham.

Chancellor George Osborne told BBC News last week that the new project will create around 8,000 jobs and help rejuvenate Birmingham's Eastside.
