Lead statement
Central control and process operators, mineral and metal processing, operate and monitor multi-function process control machinery and equipment to control the processing of mineral ores, metals or cement. They are employed in mineral ore and metal processing plants such as copper, lead and zinc refineries, uranium processing plants, steel mills, aluminum plants, precious metal refineries and cement processing plants.

Main duties
Central control and process operators, mineral and metal processing, perform some or all of the following duties:
Co-ordinate and monitor the operation of a particular aspect of mineral ore, metal and cement processing production through control panels, computer terminals or other control systems, usually from a central control room
Operate multi-function central process control machinery to grind, separate, filter, melt, roast, treat, refine or otherwise process mineral ores
Observe computer printouts, video monitors and gauges to verify specified processing conditions and to make necessary adjustments
Co-ordinate and supervise production crew such as machine and process operators, tenders, assistants and helpers
Start up and shut down the production system in cases of emergency or as required by schedule
Provide or organize training for members of production crew
Maintain shift log of production and other data and prepare production and other reports.
