Northern Star Resources is the global gold growth company, with three large, high margin production centres exclusively in the tier one locations of Western Australia and Alaska, USA. Production guidance is 1.6 million ounces in the current financial year, before climbing to 2 million ounces by FY27.

Current reserves of 19Moz underpin long mine lives across the portfolio, with further upside from an enviable track record in exploration and discovery. Responsible and progressive ESG practices are integral to the Northern Star business.

Northern Star Resources invests heavily in the future of the mining industry with a much sought-after formal graduate training program. With a wealth of high-quality graduates, the Kalgoorlie operations are seeking an experienced Geologist to assist with training and mentoring of graduates and other frontline geological staff amongst other day-to-day geological duties.

This role is residential in Kalgoorlie, ideal for candidates requiring part-time, casual or other flexible working arrangements.

What’s the role on offer?

The primary purpose of the role is to assist in the day-to-day operation of the mine geology team, largely, but not exclusively, through mentoring frontline geological staff through core yard and office activities. Beyond the mentoring, the lead-by-example role will necessarily involve a large component of performing the tasks being mentored.

This will include:

  • Diamond drill core logging;
  • Sample submission and tracking;
  • Assay verification and QAQC;
  • Validation of drillhole and other data;
  • Some reporting and wireframing.

Are you our next Geologist?

You will be an experienced geologist with a substantial background in gold mining and exploration with a strong aptitude for mentoring. You will display behaviour consistent with our Northern Star values of safety, teamwork, accountability, respect and results (STARR).

Required Skills and Experience:

  • Tertiary qualification in geology;
  • Current “C” Class manual Western Australian drivers licence;
  • An aptitude for mentoring is critical;
  • Good interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills;
  • Strong commitment to safety;
  • A demonstrated ability to work within a team and maintain strong stakeholder relationships;
  • Flexibility to adapt to improved procedures and practices.

Why join us?

When you join our Company, you join the Northern Star Team.

In joining Northern Star, you will experience:

  • A stable long-life operation with well-developed, but not restrictive, operating systems that maximise safety and efficiency, but respect the importance of diverse professional opinions and experiences in delivering results;
  • As a residential position, based in Kalgoorlie, this role can accommodate flexible work arrangements for suitable candidates.

Northern Star actively supports and contributes to the local communities in which we operate. We recognise the advantage of a diversified workplace including diversity of gender, thought, experience, and ethnicity. We encourage applications from diverse backgrounds and strive for workplace excellence.
