Having recently started ore development along the high-grade South-West lodes accessed from the newly established second decline, it is an exciting time to join this high-margin success story.THE ROLE:Reporting to the Senior Mine Geologist, this role will be responsible for the underground grade control function of the deposit. You will ensure ore development is mined to optimise stope extraction and manage core logging and sampling of Grade Control drill programs. The role will also provide assistance in both the planning and implementation of drill programs, reconciliations and modelling of the deposit.Key responsibilities of this role will include:Day to day grade control operationsMapping and samplingDesign and monitoring of grade control drilling programsAssisting in the production of grade control block modelsProviding daily, weekly and monthly grade control reports on mine geology, grade drivers and ore reconciliationCommunicate geological and grade data to mining, management and contractor personnel to achieve production targetsEnsuring that planning maximises recovery and minimises ore loss and dilution.ABOUT YOU:As a passionate and results-driven professional, you will bring your technical expertise and analytical approach to this dynamic and challenging role.
