BW Gold Ltd. is a subsidiary of Artemis Gold Inc., listed on the TSX Venture exchange, a well-financed, growth-oriented gold development company aimed at creating shareholder value through the identification, acquisition, and development of gold properties in mining friendly jurisdictions. Our current focus is the recently acquired Blackwater Gold Project in central British Columbia approximately 160km southwest of Prince George and 450km northeast of Vancouver.
This is an excellent opportunity for you to join an entrepreneurial organization with strong financials and depth of experience that is focused on technical excellence without the bureaucracy of larger firms. You will have the ability to make a significant contribution to the project team as the Company pursues the disciplined development of the Blackwater Project. Blackwater is an advanced-stage development project which received its environmental assessment approvals in 2019 and is proceeding towards permitting, with the goal of commencing major construction in fall 2022. The Company published a Feasibility Study in September 2021 which reflects a 22-year mine life, a low strip ratio of 2:1 and a net present value of C$2.15B at a long-term consensus gold price of US$1,600/oz.
The role will be full time and based in Vancouver, Prince George, or Vanderhoof, however some travel to the company’s other office locations and the Blackwater mine site will be required. The Blackwater Project is 165 km Southwest of Prince George, BC.
This is a unique opportunity to join an experienced team early in the detailed engineering and construction phase and to contribute to the success of a flagship project for the province. The role will provide a unique opportunity to work with, learn from, and build relationships with technical experts, project professionals, vendors, and construction partners. The position will report to the Senior Project & Contracts Engineer and be responsible for project wide engineering coordination and support the project controls functions.
