Working as a Geotechnical Engineer in UG operations in Australia is a challenging and rewarding role. It combines technical underground fieldwork with analytical office-based tasks, requiring a blend of engineering expertise, problem-solving skills, and the ability to work under the unique conditions of underground environments.
Ground Stability Analysis: Assessing and analysing the stability of underground structures, including tunnels, shafts, and mine walls. Rock Mechanics: Understanding the behaviour of different rock types under various stress conditions common in underground environments. Design and Planning: Providing design recommendations for underground excavations and support systems to ensure safe and efficient operations.
“Leading a multidisciplinary team allows you to see how each area contributes to the overall value of the Mining project.”
