We are looking for a Resource Geologist to join our Exploration Department, which has a focus on iron ore deposits.
Our Department is in an expansive phase with responsibility for exploration at our underground mines and open pits and their close surroundings in Malmberget, Kiruna and Svappavaara. The Department also undertakes more greenfield exploration and delivers all of the Mineral Resource estimations for the company. You will be expected to work independently on projects from the early exploration stage onwards and with a focus on iron ore deposits.
As a Resource Geologist you will be a part of a team that supports both near-mine exploration and field exploration as a specialist within resource estimation, QAQC and reporting.
The position also involves supporting the junior employees with various modelling and resource estimation issues. Good knowledge of database management is important. We offer an interesting and dynamic workplace with opportunities for development and challenging duties.
You will be based in either Kiruna or Malmberget, close to the mining operation and city of Kiruna/Gällivare, both situated in Swedish Lapland above the Arctic Circle.
This is a permanent position.
We are looking for a Resource Geologist with a BSc or higher with a minimum of 8 years of experience, preferably within exploration and/or mining.
Since LKAB is reporting according to the PERC (2021) standard, experience in working with PERC or similar international standards is beneficial. We would like your experience to be within resource estimation according to international best practice and knowledge of common software such as Leapfrog, Vulcan, Datamine or similar.
As a person you should be responsible and driven, but also percipient and flexible. The position includes interaction and personal contact both inside and outside the Department, where good collaboration is essential.
A Driving license is a requirement for the position.
You must be able to express yourself both in written and spoken English. Preferably also Swedish but if not, we want you to be eager to learn.
