Senior Exploration Geologist

Immediate permanent opportunity for an experienced Senior Exploration Geologist.

Your new company

Has recently acquired $6m in finance from local and international institutions, the latter of which includes two investment funds which focus on decarbonisation. The client has acquired multiple tenement opportunities in the Kimberley region of WA which has been underexplored over the past 20 years. The region is prospective for gold and nickel sulphide but there are also indications of lithium, which will be the first campaign focus for the company. The team is small and have their HQ in West Perth, where they share an office space with like-minded explorers (but planning to expand into their own space). They are looking for an exploration manager who can help establish and lead their campaigns. The company ethos is all about backing yourself and having a crack. They want someone who can make mistakes, learn from them, then move on. They're all about celebrating the success and enjoying the wins!

Your new role

Reporting to the Managing Director, the Exploration Manager will oversee all exploration activities across the tenement packages and will be responsible for delivering exploration success and resource development in conjunction with the corporate strategy. This can range from a variety of tasks within the generative phase of exploration and will then grow to cover broader areas of exploration, depending on drilling results. With an initial focus on lithium, the client has about 6 months of planned drilling in the region, starting with an RC campaign in May.

Typical duties will include:

  • Design, coordinate and implement the company's exploration programs
  • Provide on-ground leadership to a small established team of exploration professionals
  • Assist in the compilation and reporting of exploration activities, producing technical reports, resource statements, statutory reporting
  • Supervision, training and mentoring of junior exploration team members
  • Responsible for exploration budget and cost control
  • Manage relationships with key stakeholders including contractors, landholders, native title groups and local communities

What you'll need to succeed

  • Tertiary qualifications in Geosciences
  • Proven experience at leading an exploration team/campaign (projects or seniors are encouraged to apply)
  • Experience with gold, nickel or lithium
  • The desire to find the next discovery
  • Willingness to get in the field and help where needed

What you'll get in return
  • Industry competitive salary + 10% superannuation
  • Access to performance rights & options when company lists
  • Potential for bonuses pending key metrics are met
  • The chance to build and lead a team from scratch
  • Time in the field as well as the office
  • Well financed company with solid financial backing and a team serious about geology
