Senior Mining Engineer - Brisbane Corporate Office


                        GROW WITH PAN AUST .



  • Join a high-performing mining company with operations and growth projects in Southeast Asia
  • Exciting opportunity to be part of shaping the future of PanAust
  • Diverse role with medium term to strategic LOM planning and evaluation of copper-gold prospects – open pit focus, potential for underground
  • Brisbane corporate office – limited site travel


PanAust Limited is an Australian-headquartered copper and gold producer in Laos, with pre-development and exploration assets in Laos, Myanmar and Papua New Guinea (PNG). The Company is focused on a sustainable business model associated with the production and sale of copper and gold, delivery of production goals and astute responsible growth.


In Laos, PanAust owns a 90 per cent interest in the Lao-registered company, Phu Bia Mining. The Government of Laos owns the remaining 10 per cent. Phu Bia Mining owns and operates PanAust Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation and Ban Houayxai Gold-Silver Operation.


In Myanmar, PanAust holds an 80 per cent interest in Wuntho Resources Company Limited (WRCL) and has established a joint venture with Myanmar Energy Resources Group International Company Limited (MERG), a Myanmar-based company which holds the remaining 20 per cent of WRCL. WRCL holds exploration tenements covering roughly 900 square-kilometres in Myanmar's Sagaing Region.


In PNG, PanAust holds an 80 per cent interest in the Frieda River Copper-Gold Project. The Project’s scope supports a mine life in excess of 30 years and extraction of an extensive Mineral Resource by leveraging third-party shared-use infrastructure.


As a growing company, PanAust offers a diverse range of career challenges and opportunities, as well as a competitive salary package for the right candidate. As an employer who values diversity, we encourage women to apply for all available positions. 


Based in our James Street corporate office, you will report to the Principal Mining Engineer within the technical services group. This scope of the role is diverse, although the primary objective is to provide strategic technical support to our open pit operations in Laos through the preparation of the life of mine plan, reserves and evaluation of improvement opportunities. The role also encompasses evaluation of new prospects within the South East Asian region. You will work closely with both the technical services team and mine planners based in Laos, and develop an appreciation of the business; as such, some travel to site will be required.


This is an exciting opportunity to have the best of both worlds: site exposure with high performing assets offshore, and all the benefits that a Brisbane corporate office has to offer. As such, it may suit an experienced expatriate keen to return home to Brisbane or for an experienced consultancy engineer looking to join an in-house team where you can be part of shaping the future of PanAust, and see your efforts realised.


Your key responsibilities will include:

Provide mining engineering inputs for mine design, life of mine scheduling and ore reserve estimation


To be successful in this role, you will require:

A degree qualification in Mining Engineering


You must have the right to live and work in Australia to apply for this job.
