Job Description:/h3:
Senior Mine Geologist : Production Gold Mining
This is an immediate opportunity for an outstanding Senior Mine Geologist to lead best in class mining efficiency and prediction techniques on a large project.
Based in Eureka Nevada for assignment to the Gold Bar project.
This position works closely with the General Manager, Mine Manager, Chief Engineer, and staff to develop and update mine planning and production forecasts, both long:term and short:term. The Senior Mine Geologist plays a lead role in coordinating and supervising activities related to the daily needs of an open pit mining operation in Northern Nevada. Understanding grade control in relation to Carlin:type alteration, mineralization, lithology and geologic structures is a key part of this role. Analyzing actual production versus resource model reconciliation, analyzing pit geology along with geotechnical aspects. The position requires experience with statistical and geostatistical analytical techniques, resource block modeling, geologic mapping and interpretation, and grade control. In partnership with the Chief Engineer and Mine Manager, the Senior Geologist will develop practical, efficient, and organized mine plans which allow for economic recovery of and processing of minable ore reserves, and perform the following:
Primary Duties and Responsibilities:
Design ore models and create geological maps to provide direction and advice concerning all aspects of ore grade control; develop grade control procedures and team communications
Identify and model complex relationship between lithology, structure and alteration of oxidized and refractory ore zones
Work with short: and long:term mine planning to ensure that refractory ore is segregated and only oxidized ore placed on leach pad
Perform pit mapping and interpret geology to generate timely geologic maps to be used with the ore control assay data, and minimize dilution
Utilize mining software, along with basic to advanced statistical software tools, to evaluate a variety of data sets including blast hole and development drill hole assays
Review/analyze actual mined production versus resource model reconciliation for ore tons/grade and develop factors for updating mine planning projections in future mining areas
Review and monitor blast hole sampling methods and techniques, adjusting as needed, and assist in ore control pin flagging and blast hole sample pickup, as required
Review, update, and maintain QA and QC protocols and ensure quality standards/goals are met
Optimize grade control and minimize dilution in partnership with ore control through efficient mine designs, ore plans and mining/geo best practices
Measure and monitor slope stability for mining plan and model development
Present information to mine:site personnel on current geologic and engineering studies
Partner in developing life of mine planning and support for operational and development activities
Perform field technician duties such as inspections, calibrations and sampling
Works with cross:functional departments and is part of the change:management process/team
Accurately maintain detailed records and archives, and assist with document control
Train and mentor ore control geologists and other mine site personnel
Assist with internal and external audits
Minimum Knowledge, Skills and Ability
Bachelors degree in Geology (Masters preferred) 7 to 10+ Years of progressive experience as a mining geologist, to include ore control, advanced statistical analytical techniques, and using mining software that includes 3D modeling
Strong familiarity with complex geology of Carlin:type deposits
Intermediate to advanced MS:Suite functional proficiency
Effective oral and written communications skills
Ability to perform field work in natural and uneven terrain; walking, bending, reaching, lifting and moving gear or equipment, and to
