Mineral Processing & Laboratory Jobs

Paddington Mill

Mineral processing plants and laboratories can be complex. In the same way, job opportunities are different depending on the specific mineral, metal or commodity being processed.

We have found jobs for thousands of process plant operators and laboratory technicians across numerous job titles and commodities including;

  • Gold
  • Base Metals
  • Precious Metals
  • Iron Ore
  • Mineral Sands
  • Speciality Minerals

We also fully understand that mills and plants have different sections and that your skills and therefore the job you want, may apply to one section of the plant more so than another. Each section of a processing operation may have equipment and technology unique to that mill or laboratory including:

  • Crushing
  • Grinding
  • Leaching
  • Smelting
  • Refining
  • Assaying
  • Laboratory

Our Promise is to be honest with you and advise you if we are not able to help. The vast majority of MPi's clients require us to present candidates with at least 12 months of recent Australian mining experience. Therefore, we recommend that people without Australian mining experience contact mining and contracting companies directly as they do sometimes directly employ candidates without Australian mining experience themselves.
