  • Are you an experienced Industrial Hygienist looking to advance your career? 
  • Great opportunity to join the Red Chris mine camp in Northwestern BC.
  • Enjoy a competitive wage and comprehensive benefits package.

Join Imperial: a British Columbia explorer, developer and mining operator 

Our history dates back to December 1959 when Imperial Metals & Power Ltd. was incorporated in British Columbia. Over the past five decades, we have undergone a number of transitions to become the Company we are today. The most pivotal was in 1995 when Imperial merged with Bethlehem Resources Corporation. This merger set the Company on a new path, bringing together our current team under the direction of Brian Kynoch. Our management team has worked together for over 20 years, and has been involved in construction and/or operation of seven mines, the majority in British Columbia. Since 1994, Murray Edwards has been the Company's largest shareholder and an important component of our growth and development.
