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

About the role

Due to exceptional growth for our Exploration and Geology operations, we have a newly created position for an experienced Senior Geologist.  Your primary responsibility is  providing high level of technical direction and support to the mine geologist teams across the MinRes group within the Lithium mine sites.  Whilst ensuring that all mine plans are appropriately de-risked through effective collaboration between both site and Orebody Knowledge teams
