Mining Geology and Exploration Jobs

Please enter an image description.

Geology and Exploration play a critical role in the mining cycle through the discovery and delineation of an economic ore body through to ensuring the best optimal extraction.

The structural setting and mineralisation of various mined commodities can take a myriad of different geological forms. As such we aim to understand these complexities and their respective nuances from an underground narrow vein ore body through to a large tabular open pit deposit, across various geographical locations and the implications this may have.

We endeavour to listen and learn your skills and expertise with a commitment to pairing it with our clients, for the mutual benefit of all involved. We work across the following disciplines from entry level through to management and board level assignments:

  • Exploration Geologists
  • Project Exploration Geologists
  • Resource Geologists
  • Database Geologists
  • Open Pit Geologists
  • Underground Geologists
  • Underground Project Geologists

We have over many years demonstrated a unique ability to assist with individual or project recruitment assignments, from short term contracts to permanent placements.

Looking to get a start within the industry?

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.

Please refer to the FAQ section of our website here for more information on how to get into the mining industry. Additionally, we are affiliated with an organisation that specialises in assisting people get into the mining industry and we recommend you review their website at www.minedex.com.au
