There are more than 100 careers across the exploration and mining industries, opportunities exist on mine sites, in high-tech remote centres, in science as well as computer laboratories – or any mix of locations.
So many opportunities exist in managing teams, rehabilitating sites, building robotics or piloting drones, engineering machinery, safeguarding native plants and animals, or tackling climate change. The industry is also a significant employer of environmental scientists, Indigenous engagement specialists, cultural heritage advisers, hydrogeologists and social performance advisers. Its important for all of us to move forward into a more responsible, economical, environmentally sustainable future.
Renewable energy is also driving demand for resources. Australia is fast becoming the supplier of choice for a low carbon future, whether it be silver, silicon and copper for solar panels, lithium for battery storage and electric vehicles, or vanadium, cobalt and rare earths for wind turbines.

Whatever your age, background and experience, with so many jobs on offer there has never been a better time to consider a career in Australian exploration or mining.
