A miner is someone who works in a mine and would be in charge of trying to acquire some precious minerals and rocks that may be located deep within the shafts of the mountain that is being mined.

There are a lot of miners who get compensated a lot because the job is considered to be dangerous, especially when compared to other jobs. A minor is someone who is not yet of legal age. The legal age can always be different for people from different parts of the world.

For example, there are some places wherein the legal age is 18. This means that those who are beyond 18 can already start drinking and participating in other “adult” activities. In some places, the legal age is 21.

Miner and minors are homophones. They sound the same, but the difference between them is their meaning and how they are spelled. Miner is an occupation. They are responsible for getting mines from underground. Many people may know their job from the job coal miners.

It is a very dangerous job, and they also excavate gold, diamonds, and iron. A minor is a noun. It refers to a person under 18 years of age. The word minor can also be used as an adjective to describe something that is small in context.

For example, "Allen had a minor injury during the game, but he will be able to play tomorrow."
