Drill Core Technician (6 month contract)

Closing Date: March 22, 2024


Job Summary


Reporting to the Senior Project Geologist, the Drill Core Technician will be responsible for supporting a large and complex mineral deposit development program on site. Duties primarily consist of collecting detailed geotechnical and geological data, and implementing a rigorous QA/QC program, while upholding rigorous safety standards and working as part of a driven geoscience team. The position is focused on a drilling program at Galore Creek, a world-class porphyry copper-gold deposit that is currently being evaluated in a prefeasibility study.




This position is based out of the Galore Creek Uhtlān Camp, a remote fly-in camp located in northwestern British Columbia. GCMC will provide travel from Vancouver to Uhtlān Camp. This role is expected to be working on-site on a rotational basis of 14 days on, 14 days off from June until September; work outside of this time may be completed at the Galore Creek office or potentially from home. The successful candidate would have a start date in approximately May 2024.


Located in northwestern British Columbia, Galore Creek is one of the world’s largest undeveloped porphyry copper-gold-silver deposits. Galore Creek Mining Corporation (GCMC), a partnership between Newmont Corporation and Teck Resources Limited, is committed to improving the project economics and advancing the asset towards development. Working closely with the Tahltan Nation and local communities, we strive for excellence in all our activities, with continuous improvement and responsible practices that contribute to sustainable development.
