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. 

About the Opportunity

Red Chris, an Imperial Metals company, has an immediate opportunity for an experienced Senior Mine Engineer to join the Mine Operations Department at the remote Red Chris mine in Northern British Columbia.

Located 80 kilometers south of Dease Lake in Tahltan traditional territory, the successful candidate will be required to work and stay in camp on a rotational basis. 

Reporting to the Chief Mine Engineer, you will be responsible for aiding in the development of mine plans based on all geological information that sustains safety, production and cost goals.

The successful candidate will have strong knowledge of, and experience in, open pit mining operations coupled with at least five (5) years of relevant working experience. You MUST also have:   

  • Bachelor of Science in Mine Engineering from an internationally recognized institution; 
  • Experience with mine planning software systems (MineSight, Gemcom, Surpac, Vulcan, XPAC, MineShed).

In addition, our ideal candidate will have three (3) or more years of progressive experience in a direct operations environment, the ability to work independently, adjust to changing priorities, the ability to multi-task and adhere to strict deadlines. 

If you are a natural leader with a strong focus on team development, this is an ideal opportunity for you.  

About the Benefits

Red Chris is a remote mining camp where our employees live during their days of work. Transportation to and from site is provided from designated marshaling points around British Columbia. All meals and accommodation (including satellite TV, wifi) are also provided to all employees while in camp.
