A great career opportunity exists for a Mine Surveyor in the George Fisher Mine’s Technical Services Department.
Working in one of the world’s deepest and most complex zinc mines, you will be responsible for providing reliable survey control to the mining operation. Input from your data will contribute to decisions about our designs, plans and schedules of the mine. By being responsible for accurate survey data / mine plan compilation, data processing and reporting, you will directly and visibly impact the safety and performance of our operation. Performing mark ups for development and production drilling, horizontal and vertical development control and stope cavity surveys, plus updating the database with current survey information means you will work across all parts of the mining process, interacting with various departments and helping shape the future direction of the mine.
Ideally you will hold a tertiary qualification in surveying, and have previous underground metalliferous experience. You must be experienced in the use of Mine Surveying software, with experience in Deswik software being advantageous. It is expected that you are proficient at Microsoft Office Suite too, especially Excel. We use Leica surveying equipment in the field so it would help if you have used those systems, or similar and as you will move around site independently, a manual driver’s licence will be required.
We offer an attractive roster, a competitive remuneration package and above standard superannuation. Plus a generous incentive scheme. This role is usually residential, but there may be an option of FIFO if required. In addition you will be growing your knowledge and experience in a massive mine with a world class reputation, and advancing your career prospects within Glencore, one of the world’s largest mining companies. If you are capable at what you do, enjoy working in and contributing to a team, then you are a good fit with us. Add passion about your work and a desire to build a career, not just hold a job, then we want to hear from you.
Please note shortlisting and interviews will take place progressively so don’t wait to apply.
Our mining operation is on land traditionally owned by the Kalkadoon People and we respect their rights and interests. Mount Isa Mines encourages suitably qualified indigenous applicants to apply.
