Due to continued increases in project work, we are looking for an experienced resource geologist to support the growth of our resource consulting, software and training business. In particular, we are looking for a self-starter who can both manage resource studies, and complete high-end resource estimation, resource review and mine reconciliation technical work across a range of commodities and geographies. You will have access to a world class mining, geology and corporate team, and a wide network of associates. In addition, you would be a vital part of the innovation team behind our industry-leading software tools, Supervisor and Reconcilor. We are looking to grow our team and bring in great people with great skills, who want to make a difference and contribute to our shared success.
