As we expand out exploration activities around Thalanga, we currently seek a Project Exploration Geologist to join our growing geology team.

Reporting to the Geology Manager, you will be a key driver of near mine and regional exploration around Thalanga focusing on highly prospective VMS targets. Key accountabilities will include:

  • Target generation

  • Core logging and processing
  • Field mapping
  • Mentoring junior geological Staff
