Acacia is assisting the board of Chalice Mining with the appointment of the newly created role of General Manager - Projects and Operations.

Chalice is a top performing ASX-listed exploration specialist, located in West Perth WA. They are well funded and have an unrivalled portfolio of district-scale, precious and base metals projects in premier terranes of Australia.

In March 2020, Chalice made a globally significant, high-grade Platinum Group Element-Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Gold discovery at the Julimar Project in Western Australia. The 100% owned Project is located ~70km NE of Perth, and is considered Australia's first major PGE discovery. The discovery has also established a brand-new mineral region, the West Yilgarn Nickel-Copper-PGE Province.

The Company is targeting a maiden Mineral Resource estimate for the discovery by mid-2021. This exciting project is emerging as a strategic deposit of critical, clean energy metals and offers a multitude of unique opportunities, including ease of access and proximity to Perth.

Their high-profile Board is led by highly regarded industry veteran Tim Goyder. Award winning, Managing Director Alex Dorsch heads up their experienced management team.


A dynamic, nimble leader, with well-deserved credibility in the mining industry.  

Your background in engineering has built the foundations for your thorough, technical understanding of mining projects from scoping through to production.

You are a strategic thinker and mining study expert who is across the detail in mining, processing and operations.

As a manager you are known for your ability to bring together high performing project teams. Your exposure to PGE, nickel and copper projects has established a network of technical experts you'll be able to draw on to create a competent scoping study team.


As General Manager - Projects and Operations, you will be responsible for shaping and then delivering the Company's mining study strategy.

Central to this you will be tasked with the delivery of mining studies to outline the commercial viability of the Julimar Project.

In the first twelve months you will develop a plan and advance the scoping study. You will build a team of consultants and contractors to progress the study, while implementing the strategy to complete the prefeasibility and definitive feasibility studies on the back of these results.

You will ensure that all development plans meet ESG requirements, ensuring that the project upholds Chalice's commitment to adopting best practice environmental and social standards.
