Relocation will be provided and free company housing (you read that correctly). A great place for you to live and have that elusive “Work V Life V Location” balance! Top spot for a young family too. Not to mention highly likely the most technically challenging & variable, yet rewarding role you’ll have had – I can elaborate.

  • Reconciliations will be fun!
  • Assisting with and/or preparation of budgets, plans & schedules

  • Conducting project planning, producing project schedules, analysing project progress and associated reporting.
  • Reviewing drill and blast designs submitted by the mining contractor to ensure all of the great work completed by the Geo’s isn’t diluted

The ideal candidate:

  • We’d assume it not be too much to ask to have a thorough knowledge of mine site operations & understanding of a mine sites’ commercial structure gained through a minimum of 7-12 years experience
