  • Darwin | Northern Territory | Australia
  • You’re in your element working with Zn[30], Ag[47], Pb[82]

Glencore’s McArthur River Mine (MRM) is a world-class zinc-lead mine with a long future. You’ll find our mine in the Gulf of Carpentaria 900 km southeast of Darwin and 64 km from Borroloola. We produce and process zinc, lead and silver from our open cut mine. It is then stored and transported to our Bing Bong loading facility and is shipped to our customers all over the world. Our customers use our essential commodities in everyday products for mobility, infrastructure and communications.

At MRM we’re looking for a Metallurgist to join our metallurgy technical services team to maximise our metal recovery. You have a degree in Science – Extractive Metallurgy or Chemical Engineering coupled with experience producing metal and minerals in a mining environment. You are an ambassador for safety – always keeping you mates safe in workplace.

To help us convert raw metal into something our customers use, you will provide technical metallurgical advice; refine metals recovered to reduce waste, engage with laboratory, maintenance, electrical and production teams to optimise process design; and contribute significantly to our operational performance and success.

Apply what you know to increase our metal production, solve complex problems, and use samples and analysis to inform decisions. Carry out tests and analyse fixed equipment and provide support to all inspection and reliability groups. Your commitment to the environment and rock disposal is just as important to you as the extraction.

As a Glencore team member we want to set you up for success. You’ll get to do this with our team of experts through coaching and mentoring opportunities. We will help you connect with new colleagues so you can build strong work relationships, grow your knowledge of the mining & metals industry and provide you with an environment that empowers you to get on with job.

The role reports to the Superintendent, Metallurgy and is FIFO from Darwin working 15 days on and 13 days off, from here you can make the most of your 13 day weekend. You will discover a rich culture and heritage, places like Kakadu and Uluru, attend exciting events & festivals, visit national parks & waterfalls, catch a barra and see crocodiles in the wild. We believe in the Territory first and will even move you here!

You’ll learn more about the important part we continue to play in the Territory's resources industry and how we contribute to our local area, the NT and our nation.

You are a good fit with this role if:

  • ‘Metalliferous’ means something to you
  • Using cutting edge equipment like ultra-fine regrind mills, online analysers and expert systems excites you
  • You’re a science whiz with an appetite for all things metal
  • You don’t mind getting your hands dirty
