Vista Gold is currently not recruiting any positions for the Mt Todd site
Future Employment Opportunities Once the final investment decision has been made on the Mt Todd project, the detailed engineering and construction phase of the project will commence, which is expected to have a peak employment of around 450. When operations have commenced, the mine is expected to employ approximately 350 people on a full-time basis, comprised of both semi-skilled and professional staff.
Vista Gold does not intend to operate the Mt Todd site with a fly-in fly-out workforce, nor will it have a permanent work camp on site. Instead, Vista Gold expects to work with the Katherine Town Council and the Northern Territory Government to identify opportunities to house employees within the local communities of Katherine, Pine Creek and Adelaide River.
The Mt Todd mine will require a skilled workforce and Vista Gold plans to work with local institutions to establish training programs to build local capacity and capability. Opportunities are expected to include work for apprentices and trainees. The goal of the training programs will be to help interested and capable members of the local community acquire or improve the job skills required to gain employment at the Mt Todd mine.
As a continuation of its long relationship with the Jawoyn Association, Vista Gold also intends to undertake a joint training program for the local Indigenous community members.
