Senior Hydrogeologist

  • Osborne Park, WA, Australia, 6017
  • Full Time

WA’s a state (and an economy) built on mining and at Mineral Resources (MinRes), we’re focused on growing that position.

With this growth comes new roles and those rare opportunities to help shape company culture and contribute to lasting change.

About the role

In this position you will be primarily responsible for assisting the Principal Ground Control and Water in:

  • Implementing the Water Management Plan (WMP) across MinRes operating mines.
    - Provide advice to the mine team on mine dewatering, water supply, ground and surface water management.
    - Ensure that water related data are managed appropriately to support the ongoing requirements of the mines.
    - Monitor, review and report on license compliance, borefield operational performance and water usage.
  • Implementing growth and sustaining projects.
    - Prepare scope of work, engage and guide third party specialist consultants.
    - Provide leadership during the scoping and execution of field investigations.
    - Ensure that the project deliverables meet current and future operational requirements.
    - Integrate the project outcomes into the WMP.
  • Implementing and updating the critical surface/groundwater processes, systems, procedures, and databases for all functions (including monitoring).

Your work becomes more meaningful when it’s part of something bigger than you. It may feel like you’re pushing yourself to the edge of what’s possible, but this is the kind of work that fills you up and highlights the value of your contribution. Your time with MRL is an opportunity to capitalise on the skills and talent that you’ve been cultivating for so long, in an environment where you’ll be given the trust to do so.
