Permitting Specialist

The details pro who keeps everybody else employed.

Mines must fulfill a huge number of government-mandated requirements to ensure that they’re operating safely. No permits, no mine. So this is a critically important person on a mine’s team who is responsible for the successful and timely attainment of permits from state and federal land-management and safety-oversight agencies for various phases of mining projects. If you’re detail-oriented and success-focused, this is a great job for you.
