Senior Geologist

Charters Towers

We have a position available for a senior geologist – someone with all round experience. This person will act as company geologist in charge of getting up to speed on all the client's projects, completing statutory reporting requirements and making ML applications on our behalf. This role is very hands on. 

The geologist will need to be able to review existing data and databases in various forms and condition, and put them into shape for the engineer to use for design and evaluation purposes. Then advise on what and where further exploration is required.

 As the projects are developed into production, the incumbent geologist will need to supply technical oversight and direction of site based geological personnel.
