Mining Geologist

  • Full Time

Mineral Resources is an innovative and leading mining services company, with a growing world-class portfolio of mining operations across multiple commodities, including iron ore and lithium.

You probably have heard us allot in the media recently?

MRL is going through an exponential growth phase spear headed by a diverse business model that includes owner operating sites - mining lithium, iron ore and our powerful mining services arm.

Our business model is one of agility and fluidity that has changed with market conditions - just look at our investment in world class lithium operations and our upcoming iron ore Ashburton Project.

Now is the time to jump into an organisation that empowers people to make decisions and make a daily impact in their role.

About the role

Due to exponential growth, we have a newly created position for an experienced Mining Geologist at our Wonmunna project on an 8/6 roster. This is a great opportunity for a Mining geologist to take their next step. Wonmunna, located within the Pilbara, produces approximately 8 Million tonnes of iron ore per annum. Product from this mine is transported to Utah Point, blended with other ore from our operations and exported to our global markets.

Reporting through to our onsite Leadership team, this role will hold accountability for the undertaking and supervision of daily activities across the project. Your primary responsibility will be to manage daily site geological activities in conjunction with production and planning operation teams and mentoring pit technicians.

In this position you’ll:

  • Pit sampling, ore mark ups and ore spotting
  • Database management and data entry
  • Manage production and stockpile tracking
  • EOM reporting and reconciliations
  • Maintain and foster a working environment which prompts safety in all that we do, whilst also providing outstanding service
  • Provide support to Mining Team to optimise ore extraction
  • Work closely with relevant stakeholders to effectively communicate geological and grade requirements
  • Identify areas that have the potential for development and/or improvement

As a leader, you want to look back in a few years and be proud of what you’ve achieved.

Not just as one replaceable cog in a mining machine, but as a change maker.

Tracking these achievements gives you runs on the board and a clear path towards your next challenge or project. At MRL, we want you to celebrate your wins and see the next step clearly.

Giving you the freedom to reimagine how things work? MRL would.

Necessary skills and qualifications:

  • Hold tertiary qualification in geology or related discipline
  • Demonstrated experience working in an open cut mining environment, in a similar position
  • Lithium exposure will be highly advantageous
  • Highly developed communication skills
  • Ability to work well in a team environment or independently
  • Proficient with Surpac, Acquire and other related software
  • WA C Class Drivers Licence

Making your mark

At MRL there’s a new energy that comes from our team of passionate employees. They achieve personal goals and contribute to a larger transformation that goes far beyond the bottom line. Our leadership pathway is focused on sharing in the success with other people as they make their own mark on our business and beyond. In the past, you may have worked day and night to get things out the door. Sure, we value effort – but we also want you to step away when you need, to leave work at work, and give your all when you’re clocked in but never at the expense of your health or family. 

And then there’s the extra benefits

We look after our people because they’re the ones looking after our business. That means a range of additional benefits for choosing MinRes, including;

  • Competitive salary
  • Quarterly cash bonuses
  • Generous leave options
  • Employee discounts and offers
  • Physical and mental health programs
  • Salary packaging
  • Brand new market leading corporate offices located in Osbourne Park
