WA is a state (and an economy) built on mining.

At Mineral Resources (MinRes), we are focused on growing our success by delivering industry leading projects that benefit our people, our shareholders and the community. With this growth comes new roles and those rare opportunities to get noticed and achieve meaningful results.

MinRes has come a long way – but we’re really just getting started.

As a key team member you will play a lead role in coordinating both external and internal stakeholders to achieve the company's goals in identifying and evaluating new and existing deposits.

This will be a hands-on position reporting directly to the Principle Geologist. The primary responsibility is identifying, exploring and developing our existing and proposed assets, where you will be a integral member for our Exploration operations within MinRES.

  • Assist in the execution of resource definition and exploration drill programs;

  • Ensuring safety standards are maintained within the geology group and with all exploration contractors;
  • Ensure drilling is completed to appropriate standards and is cost effective;
  • Reporting on progress of drill campaigns against physical budgets and technical goals;
  • Ongoing interpretation of mineralisation model based on geological observations;
  • Support the Senior and Principal Geologist with preparation of operational reports;
  • Maintain an organised electronic filing system and ensure copies of all auditable information are stored correctly;
  • Maintain regular and effective communication and feedback with peers, subordinates and superiors;
  • Maintain attention to detail in all aspects of the role;
  • Statutory and technical reporting as required;
  • Undertake work tasks as directed by the Senior Geologist and/or Principal Geologist;

We’re creating opportunities for you to own projects and deliver results. From start through to completion, your fingerprints will be there.

Because here you don’t get lost in layers of people; you step up to make your mark and can easily see your contribution.

At MinRes, you get noticed when you maximise opportunities and build a better project, a better team, a better workday.
