Environment Superintendent, diavik Diamond Mine
I certainly didn’t go to school to be the bear police, or the wolverine police, or anything like that; but there are times where I feel like my entire job is chasing bears. It’s pretty awesome.
Sean, Environment Superintendent, Diavik Diamond Mine


Between summer and winter, it’s just an entirely different world. When we’re out in the field, we’re in areas where you can’t even see that we’re near a mine site and some of the terrain is pretty spectacular – you can find yourself in the middle of a caribou herd or watching a wolverine or wolves running around. Not too many jobs where you get to go out and explore the super remote arctic tundra on a snowmobile.

I’ve been here for nearly 4 years now. A lot of the technicians have been here for years and years, and have so much experience dealing with bears and how to manage wildlife so really for me, it was just learning from the team. We’re just out there sampling water, sampling the air, monitoring wildlife, making sure we’re not having a negative impact. I’d say I’ve got the best job in the world.

Sean is an environment superintendent at our Diavik diamond mine – 200 km south of the Arctic Circle in beautiful Canada
