Malabar Resources, an independent Australian-owned company, is excited to commence its major recruitment campaign as the Maxwell Underground Mine ramps up.

This is a significant milestone at the company’s Hunter Valley operation, having transitioned from an open-cut mine to a long-life underground mine.

Malabar is supporting Australia’s transition to a low-carbon economy through its strategy of; underground mining methods focused on metallurgical coal, large-scale renewable energy projects, and the rehabilitation of previously mined areas for sustainable activities including solar power generation and agriculture.

The Maxwell Underground Mine is a testament to this vision, using state-of-the-art equipment that will support a greater than 25-year mine life.

The recruitment drive aims to fill over 200 roles, including Mine Deputies, Underground Operators, Tradespeople, “New-to-Industry” positions, and many other operational roles. Malabar seeks experienced mining personnel but also encourages applications from new entrants to the industry.

“We are excited to be offering long-term opportunities for people to develop their career with Malabar and the opportunity to be a part of a team building a new mining operation,” said James Johnson, General Manager – Development and Operations.

“We encourage both seasoned mining professionals and experts as well those wishing to enter the industry to apply.”

To facilitate this recruitment drive, Malabar will be hosting a series of roadshows across New South Wales, visiting Muswellbrook, Mudgee, Gunnedah, Lithgow, Campbelltown, Wollongong, Lake Macquarie, and Singleton. These events will offer detailed insights into Malabar and our Maxwell Underground Mine and the career opportunities.
