The White Dam Gold Project, located in South Australia approximately 90 kilometres west of Broken Hill and 400 kilometres north of Adelaide, is advanced in its development. A Joint Venture between Polymetals and Exco Resources, the project has a current life of 2-3 years with excellent potential for mine extension.
Polymetals have been appointed as the project manager and operator of the project. Final approvals have been obtained and construction has commenced. Production is anticipated to commence in early 2010.
We’ve tried unsuccessfully to contact Polymetals to get an update on when specific roles will open for application (for months now, their website has advised that a range of roles will open for application in the “next few weeks” but we’ve seen no change).
We do know that positions are residential in Broken Hill, where they are establishing a base.
Limited on-site accommodation will be available and if applying, note that processing/ fixed plant and heap leach experience beneficial (and for some roles, will be essential).
See the website: www.polymetals.com.au/Careers for more information.
The Mining Operations will be undertaken by their mining contractor, Lucas Earthworks, who operate in the civil construction, quarrying, crushing, mining and waste management sectors and employ some 200 employees. Their head office is located in Darlington, South Australia.
In addition to White Dam, they have also won work on Iluka’s Jacinth-Ambrosia mineral sands project, approximately 200kms North West of Ceduna in South Australia.
Whilst there are no vacancies associated with either project listed on their website just yet, it would pay to keep watch as the end of the year approaches and White Dam, in particular, readies to commence production.
