A mineral producer is inviting expressions of interest (EOIs) for hundreds of job vacancies at its $427 million rare earths mine in Western Australia’s midwest region.

Hastings Technology is accepting EOI job applications for its Yangibana Rare Earths Project, 270 km northeast of Carnarvon.

The WA Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) recently recommended environmental approval for the mine, which will involve developing five open mine pits, beneficiation and hydrometallurgy processing plant, access roads, haul roads, accommodation village, airstrip, administration buildings and tailings storage facilities.

The proponent is interested in hiring locals, Indigenous Australians, and anyone who is willing to work on a fly-in fly-out roster. Applicants need complete an application form and reflect the company’s values of safety, integrity, sustainability, creativity and diversity.
