Mining Geology and Exploration Recruitment

Please enter an image description.

Our geology team contains intimate industry knowledge, comprising of an ex industry Geologist and degree qualified HR professional currently studying a post grad in Mineral Exploration and Geoscience. Our philosophy is aligned to that of the MPi founders, which is based upon delivering a level of service and knowledge, we found to be vacant in the industry when in operational roles. Given the myriad of different geological forms an orebody can take, be that an underground narrow vein orebody through to a large tabular open pit deposit, we understand and quickly grasp these nuances when searching for the right people to fit your team and environment.

Our networks and reach extend anywhere within Australia from Mt Isa to Kalgoorlie or global assignments. We’ve conducted exhaustive international searches that span European based, French speaking Geology Managers for projects in West Africa, right through to Field Assistants and Core Logging Geologists in the Western Australian and Victorian Goldfields.

We strive to provide a level of flexibility that matches your needs from complete Greenfields exploration teams for short term contract drilling campaigns, or permanent geology professionals for ASX listed producers and explorers. We can provide these services within tight timeframes that releases your time and pressure.

We also offer payroll services on flexible terms, reference checks and psychometric assessments.

  • Exploration Geologists
  • Exploration Managers
