Vice President – Iron Ore Exploration and Development Company

Vice President

Our client. is a TSX-V listed company engaged in exploration and development on an iron ore project that is slated for near term production.

Their flagship project currently contains three zones of iron mineralization. Based on drilling conducted to date, two of the zones may contain 200 to 250 million tonnes with grades between 28% to 34% iron. These grades are analogous to those at Consolidated Thompson¹s nearby Bloom Lake Deposit.

An aggressive $7 million program is planned for 2010.

The program will include 20,000 metres of drilling and is designed to delineate approximately 500 million tonnes of iron ore.


In light of this potential and the expectation of near term iron ore production, our Client has an immediate opening for a Vice President, Mining.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the successful candidate will have at least an undergraduate degree in mining engineering or a related discipline from a recognized university and will have enjoyed a successful career with steady progression and ever increasing levels of responsibility within the fields of mine construction and operation.

The successful candidate will have no less than fifteen to twenty years of relevant experience and previous start-up experience seeing a large project through the study, construction and start-up phases would be a definite advantage. Ideally the successful candidate will be committed to the Company and to the project and will see the project through to production. This will require the ability to work closely and collaboratively with a number of groups, both internal and external, including third party consultants, suppliers of goods and services, regulators, members of local communities, contractors and employees. The successful candidate will participate as a key member of the Company¹s executive team and will lead the Company¹s EPCM efforts and provide leadership to the Company¹s operational team. Given what is expected to be a short timeline for this project, the ability to undertake all of these tasks under considerable pressure will be imperative as will be the ability to communicate results effectively to a variety of audiences. The successful candidate will be based in Toronto, although for the foreseeable future the majority of the successful candidate¹s time will be spent at site overseeing all facets of this project.

Please note, that due to the number of applications we receive, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
