Geologist for short Due Diligence survey
The job would require a geologist to travel to Mt Isa and get on the ground for a couple of days. Primary tasks would be to review accessibility, ground truth some historical mapping and rock chip samples, assess some areas without historical mapping/rock chips but with favourable geophysics etc. Other non technical things to look out for would be obvious potential environmental liabilities associated with historic workings, or any other things which may not have been disclosed to us prior to us committing any funds – basic due diligence stuff.
Deliverables would be a short report which would include a rough outline of the work performed and any associated results, e.g. visible copper mineralisation (malachite) in areas where such mineralisation is expected, as well details on access, any noted issues etc. Report should include reasonably extensive photographs documenting areas walked, mineralisation noted, potential hazards/liabilities noted etc. etc. Should not be a massive job – I would anticipate 5-10 pages maximum, plus pictures. If required, a basic outline and some background data could be provided along with Coda’s templates.
The ideal individual would be a geologist, preferably with some experience in the Mt Isa Inlier, and sufficient field experience that they could safely operate independently for several days and self-organise their daily activities:, i.e. at least 5-10 years of general mining industry experience or at least 3+ years of isolated/austere field exploration experience. A portable XRF license would be an advantage, but not required as there is no certainty a pXRF can be obtained for hire in Queensland on short notice.
We would anticipate the job to be short, 2-3 days in the field plus up to two travel days either side depending on availability of flights etc. An extra day may be added if a portable XRF can be sourced and rented locally to allow for a day spent recording data (most likely soil traverses over areas of prospectivity, assume approx. 1 additional day).
