Role Description:

A&B Global Mining (ABGM) is looking for a skilled Geologist who will be expected to critically review exploration data before construction sound geological models. A mineral resource estimation and classification will be based on geostatistical analysis of the mineralisation, resulting in a three-dimensional block model containing all relevant parameters.

The candidate will work in close relationship with other technical specialists, e.g., mining engineers, metallurgists, exploration geologists, etc., and will be required to participate in compiling project budgets and proposals, and constructively interacting with clients. At a more senior level, some business development activities will be required.

The ideal candidate should be self-aware of skills and experience gaps, with the desire to grow into such gaps. Mineral resource geology often interacts closely with mineral economics and the successful applicant will be expected to grow in this area, to be able to interact with project developers and financiers in a way that adds value.

  • Implement and conduct extensive QA/QC monitoring to ensure data and interpretations are accurate.
  • Update or create 3D litho-structural models and mineralization models.
  • Carry out competent geostatistical analysis of relevant data (geochemical, mineralization quality, geometallurgical, etc.)
  • Produce and validate block models and other parameters as required.
  • Produce Mineral Resource statements/reports in line with international reporting code guidelines.
  • Assist in planning exploration programs fit to deliver on project objectives and schedules.
