Current Opportunities



Plant Metallurgist

Job no: 497743
Work type: Permanent Full Time
Location: Rosebery Mine

MMG Limited is a publicly-listed global base metal mining company recognised as a leading producer of copper and zinc. As an international business, MMG strives to create an inclusive culture by bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We recognise the unique value your contribution makes to the progress of our company and the communities in which we operate.

Our Rosebery operation is an underground mine located on Tasmania’s North West Coast. The site has operated continuously since 1936 and comprises an underground base metal mine and surface processing operation with the capacity to process approximately 1,000,000 tonnes of ore a year. It is one of the largest employers in that region and over the years, it has attracted world class Engineers, Geologists, Metallurgists and Mine Managers.

Reporting to the Senior Plant Metallurgist, this role is responsible for working with the Operations Team to ensure production targets are met with respect to grade and throughput, whilst accounting for variances and losses. Key to this role will be your ability to identify and deliver continuous improvement initiatives to the mill process along with day-to-day trouble shooting of operational issues.

For this opportunity, MMG is offering an 8/6 roster on either a residential or commute (DIDO) basis.

Interested in residential? The township of Rosebery offers you the ultimate “tree change” with some of Tasmania's premier wilderness destinations at your door step including Cradle Mountain, Ben Lomond and the beautiful Freycinet on the east coast. This area is a fantastic place for families with local hospitals, education, child care facilities and sporting facilities.

Offering both technically challenging work and lifestyle choice, why would you not want to explore this opportunity?

To be considered, you’ll need to be degree qualified in Process / Chemical Engineering or associated fields and have experience in base metals flotation. Knowledge of Honeywell process control systems will be highly regarded, as well as skills in VBA programming (for reporting purposes).

This role represents a genuine career opportunity for a motivated professional.  This is a permanent residential role on an 8/6 residential roster, giving you the opportunity to become a member of the Rosebery community.  Naturally, MMG will support you with relocation to the area and provide generous housing assistance. 

As a company, we strive for the best in safety, environmental protection, production standards and overall operational excellence. We are an equal opportunity employer who values and respects diversity.

If you share MMG’s values and feel that you could make a meaningful difference in this role, please apply online before the application closing date.

Please note, screening and interviews may take place prior to the advertised closing date and all applicants must apply directly to MMG to be considered. We will not be accepting submissions from recruitment agencies on this occasion.
