Northern Minerals isn’t just interested in your experience and qualifications however, we

We understand that as a business, as a team, and as individuals, what we do on a daily basis can create positive change for the future, and that’s just what we’re going to do  – drive new revenue streams to Australia, create jobs and do it in an innovative and purposeful way that brings about positive community change.

If you’re looking to join an exciting flagship project, with a team of exceptional individuals with much more in their sights than a project timeline, then please simply apply now or contact the following:
