Experienced Field Assistant

-Our client requires someone that they can use to do the sampling on the drill rig. It is air core drilling, the samples are bagged in 25cm intervals (approximately 2.5kg samples) by the drillers and laid out on the ground.

-The geo will log them and then the fieldie would staple sample tickets into and tie the sample bags to be sampled. These would then be placed into sacks in lots of 6 and placed onto the back of the truck. The fieldie would have two traditional owners assisting them, mainly for lifting samples onto the truck but also anything the fieldie considers they are capable of assisting with….so would partially be overseeing what the t/o’s are doing to ensure it is being done correctly.
