Attractive Salary Package / Permanent Position / 15:13 roster

Your new company
Panoramic Resources Limited (ASX:PAN) is a base metal mining and exploration company and owns 100% of the high quality, long life Savannah underground nickel sulphide mine, 1 Mtpa processing plant and a 250 room accommodation facility located in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Panoramic successfully commissioned and operated a FIFO mining operation from 2004 until 2016 before the mine was placed in care and maintenance. Following the discovery of the Savannah North orebody, the mine was recommissioned in 2018 before operations were temporarily suspended in 2020.

Panoramic is now fully funded, well supported by shareholders and has completed an updated Mine Plan for Savannah which has outlined an attractive near-term nickel sulphide mine restart opportunity. Over the past 6 months the company has further de-risked the project by completing a ventilation shaft for the Savannah North deposit, additional underground capital development and ancillary works. A restart of operations is now planned for July 2021 which includes Barminco as the UG mining contractor and Primero operating and maintaining the processing plant.

The Savannah Nickel has a projected mine life of 12 years with a total Resource of 209,800 tonnes nickel, 94,200 tonnes copper and 13,700 tonnes cobalt. The tenement holdings have significant exploration potential and additional programs are planned over the coming years.

Savannah Nickel Mine is now looking to build a technical team to support a successful underground mining operation.
