Senior Geologist


About this role

We’re hiring an highly motivated and experienced Senior Geologist who will be part of our client’s growing team. You will lead evaluations of potential properties for acquisition, generate targets, and design and oversee field programs from target definition through to resource expansion. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team and will work closely with data scientists, using our client’s proprietary technology to help guide our client’s field programs and decision-making. You will also work directly with our client’s senior technical advisors and with the executive team on making the investment case for acquisitions and field programs.


  • Demonstrate in all activities a commitment to the highest standards in health and safety, environment, and community relations.
  • Rigorously analyze geoscientific datasets across a range of scales from provinces to prospects to determine exploration potential and to identify, rank, and prioritize exploration targets.
  • Design, budget, permit, and execute field programs ranging from geological mapping and sampling of grass roots prospects through to large drilling programs on advanced projects, with leading industry practice in data acquisition and validation.
  • Provide technical guidance and support to local in-country project teams during the design and execution of exploration programs, including site visits and engagement with other project stakeholders (e.g., community representatives, regulatory authorities, and joint venture partners).
  • Work collaboratively with data scientist colleagues to conceive and implement insightful analytical methods.



  • A minimum of 10 years’ experience in the mineral exploration industry.
  • B.Sc. degree in geology or related geoscience field.
  • Strong technical knowledge of one or more ore deposit types. Experience working on sediment-hosted stratiform copper or magmatic sulfide deposits will be considered an advantage.
  • Excellence in generative analysis ranging from new concepts to integration, interpretation, and modeling of large datasets.
  • Good field skills and experience conducting field programs across a range of project stages from grassroots prospects through to advanced projects with significant drilling campaigns.
  • Baseline level of proficiency in standard desktop software packages (e.g., ArcGIS or QGIS).
  • Strong leadership skills including the ability to motivate and inspire others, to share ownership and responsibility for project outcomes, and to work effectively in collaborative, interdisciplinary teams.
  • Previous experience in coaching and training geoscientists of varying experience, educational backgrounds and cultures in leading-practice mineral exploration.
  • Demonstrated commitment to high standards of health and safety in the workplace.

Nice to Have:

  • A Ph.D. or M.Sc. degree.
  • Working knowledge of one programming or scripting language (e.g., Python, R, C/C++).
  • Knowledge of geostatistics and/or other statistical methods relevant for analysis of geoscientific data.
  • International experience, particularly in the Central African Copperbelt.
