George Fisher Mine

Mount Isa, Queensland, Australia

Ref. No. R2 - 38607

As one of the largest global zinc lead mines, our North Queensland Zinc Assets offers our employees unique and challenging opportunities.

As a drill and blast engineer for our underground operations you will be right where the action is, driving safe and effective operations. Your key responsibility will be optimising Drill and Blast designs to maximise productivity and reduce the potential for dilution during the ore extraction process. Functions such as safety, good record management, executing in time with the mine schedule and providing clear communications with relevant departments will all be part of your everyday tasks. Reconciliations, monitoring and continuously reviewing outcomes will be the tools you use to find improvements and enhance your reputation as someone who delivers results.

We are a large, complex and productive operation mining around 200 stopes per year. Subsequently we have a large team, so good communication, collaboration and getting along well with others are skills we value highly. A large team means opportunity for you to grow and develop into other areas of mine planning, design, and scheduling. If you are willing to be flexible, help others when required, and willing to take on new challenges your career with us could be wide and varied.

Ideally, you will have several years of experience in underground hardrock since completing your graduate programme. It is important to have the skills and experience necessary to lead the graduates and technicians under your direction. Other key drivers in our selection will be your ability to fit into our culture and team, with emphasis on our values of Safety, Openness, Entrepreneurism, Responsibility and Simplicity.

In return, Glencore Zinc offers a variety of initiatives to enhance your career prospects and your lifestyle, in addition to a competitive salary, we encourage opportunities to gain underground operations experience towards gaining your statutory qualifications and a nine day fortnight. You will also be working in one of the most productive and complex underground operations in Australia. If you desire more challenge than your current role - then you need to look into joining us at Mount Isa.

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.
