New Project Development
Superb Career Opportunity
Our client is currently undertaking studies to bring a new and exciting project into production. To ultimately achieve this they now wish to recruit a suitably experienced Group Geology Manager to supplement the current expertise in the team bringing this project to fruition. The present team is a mix of employees and contractors with good experience, work ethic and who have already established a healthy and collaborative work environment. Our client is looking for similar individuals to join the current team, people who are prepared to do what is needed but want satisfaction, recognition and enjoyment from their job.
Reporting to the Executive General Manager, the role is responsible for the implementation of “Best Practice” in all aspects of the Geology functions within the business. Indicative scope will be;
1. Developing and implementing appropriate systems and procedures for resource definition, modeling, grade control, reporting, metal and tonnage reconciliation and operational functionality of the mine.
2. Developing and managing near mine and green fields exploration programs.
3. Recruitment, development and training of the geological staff on site and in the exploration area.
4. Compilation and preparation of Ore Resource statements on an annual basis or as may be required from time to time.
5. Ensure the leases are maintained in good standing and all lease conditions are met.
6. Participate and be involved in the development and growth of the business through M&A activities, exploration or any other opportunities that may arise from time to time.
The successful candidate will have recognised tertiary qualifications in Geology, with a minimum of a recognised degree required for JORC compliance. They must also have a minimum of 8 years relevant experience in underground mining, working in the areas described above. The preference would be that the candidate has production and exploration Au experience, but a similar background in small base metal operations would also be valued. Solid problem solving and advanced Surpac skills (able to model or at least interrogate model, drill databases etc.), project development experience and a sense of humor are also desirable.
The successful applicant will initially work from Perth offices during the study phase, with some travel to site envisaged. During construction and development, the time spent on site would increase and it would be anticipated that during the first year of production, 40 – 50% of the work time would be on site (i.e. FIFO arrangement until project bedded in).
Remuneration on offer will be very competitive and in line with the candidates experience and abilities. Our client is a believer in rewarding success so an incentive program will be developed to reward significant and agreed milestones that impact on shareholder value and company growth under the successful candidate’s control.
This opportunity presents as an excellent one for an individual who fits the criteria. Expressions of interest should be forwarded to Paul Hanrahan via email@example.com citing reference 0359 “Group Geology Manager”.
