Operations in a mine site are usually tough since workers are expected to work relatively off the grid. The people on the site need to have a steady stream of resources and the ability to maintain all equipment. The main frustration of being far from population centres is a lack of proper storage and workshops to undertake repairs. If you work in the mining industry, you will agree that the chances of having a permanent structure are slim. Also, even having one that is permanent is never convenient for such an industry given that workers may have to move from one region to the other.
