Mining/Exploration Geologist

Geologists are interested in studying the composition of the earth, they use this information to advise on mining and other forms of mineral extraction, to classify the environment and to provide recommendations on regeneration. Mining and exploration geologists are particularly interested in surveying natural rock to determine its potential for mining and excavation. They are employed primarily by mining and other resource industries and utilise both data gathered in the field and advanced modelling software to make their recommendations.
