Work type: Permanent Full Time
Location: Dugald River Mine

  • Global growing mining organisation
  • On-site Accommodation with a gym and pool supplied
  •  FIFO from Townsville/Brisbane is available

MMG’s newest mine development project, Dugald River, is a world-class zinc-lead-silver deposit located in north-west Queensland.  We currently have a great career opportunity available for two experienced Mine Geologists to join our team at Dugald River.

Reporting to the Senior Mine Geologist, you will provide day to day underground mine geological services to the mining operation which will include mapping, supervision and planning of geological underground activities.  In addition, you will be required to log diamond drill core, assess, inspect and reconcile producing stopes and development headings and collation of data to support Mineral Resource estimation.

This role would ideally be suited to an experienced Geologist with a minimum of 5 years underground mine geology experience and looking to expand their knowledge and capability within a supportive team environment.  The successful applicant will have tertiary qualifications in Geology with demonstrated underground geology experience and sound computer skills.  A strong working knowledge of Vulcan software is desirable.  As a successful Geologist you will have strong technical, organisational, communication, and interpersonal skills with a proactive attitude towards safety.

Having successfully completed mine ramp up, we plan to refine and enhance our grade control processes. By becoming part of our team, you have the opportunity to use your previous experience to assist in establishing best practice geological processes early in the life of Dugald River. With a PhD student and a dedicated orebody knowledge Geologist embedded in the site geological team, there is plenty of opportunity for personal development.

This role will be based on an 8/6 roster. MMG is supportive of our local communities and region. This role is available on a drive in drive out basis (DIDO) from the Cloncurry or Mount Isa Districts. Relocation support will be available for successful candidates who reside outside of the local region who wish to relocate to the Cloncurry or Mount Isa districts. FIFO from Townsville and Brisbane is also available.
