Western Rare Earths (WRE), the wholly-owned subsidiary of Australian-traded American Rare Earths Limited, is an exploration company established to acquire and develop the advanced La Paz Rare Earths Project in Arizona, the Laramie Rare Earths Project in Wyoming, and the Searchlight Heavy Rare Earths Project in Nevada. Additional critical minerals opportunities may be added to the platform.

WRE is focused on alleviating a supply deficit hindering the rapid growth of electric vehicles, the renewable energy revolution, and high-tech defense industries. WRE is in position to become the leader in planning and executing environmentally responsible mining projects by leveraging world-class technical teams and experienced, diverse leadership. We are collaborating with leading universities and national laboratories on research to develop disruptive sustainable biotech processing systems for critical minerals.

The Geologist I is responsible for defining WRE’s mineral resources with local teams to ensure access to high-quality raw materials, improving geological knowledge for WRE and ore recovery, and leading achievable plans aligned with health and safety standards, well defined timelines and responsibilities, and a clear method for measuring performance and improvement. The ideal candidate is self-driven to take on a range of designated tasks, to identify and implement process improvements, and to establish relationships and collaborate with peers and contractors.


  • Oversee exploration activities, including drilling, well construction, field mapping, environmental sampling of different media, and logging for multiple sites
  • Conduct drilling and sampling programs to perform routine data collection, synthesis, and analysis, including lithologic descriptions, pump testing, and surface water measurements
  • Contribute to the budgeting, permitting, design, and execution of field programs
  • Write exploration permits and technical reports, scoping studies, preliminary economic assessments, feasibility studies, work plans, project communications, and related press releases
  • Design and oversee geological and mineral evaluations (quality/quantity) while providing assistance with mapping and modelization
  • Manage BA-level projects but also provide any required geological support to business development within the perimeter
  • Provide support for planning of effective mining production, reconciliation, and restoration of mineral assets
  • Build geologic models through analysis and interpretation of drillhole data
  • Supervise contractors while implementing plans in a safe and sustainable manner
  • Ensure that work is completed in accordance with Company, local, state, and federal standards and regulatory requirements
  • Ensure access to and high-quality monitoring of reliable, sustainable, and predictable resources and reserves declared in compliance with the PERC code; assess external raw material as required
  • Perform other duties as required

Working Conditions

  • Work is in office setting but may also be in mines and manufacturing plant settings, which may include exposure to extremes in temperature and humidity, moving mechanical equipment and vehicles, airborne particles, fumes, risk of electrical shock, toxic chemicals, or explosives
  • Personal protective equipment is required when performing work in a mine, outdoors, or in a manufacturing plant environment, including hard hat, hearing protection, safety glasses, safety footwear, masks, and as needed, respirator, rubber steel-toe boots, protective clothing, gloves, and other protective equipment

  • Coding experience preferred (R, Python, Visual Basic)
  • Experience with geologic mapping and interpretation in an open pit mine, geochemical sampling programs, coordinating drill-testing of targets, and building models with geologic modeling software
  • Possess a valid PG, RG, or GIT license; or ability to obtain within 6 months of hire date
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, both technical and non-technical
  • Experience with soil, groundwater, surface water, and soil gas/vapor sampling
  • Experience with drilling and construction of remediation and monitoring wells in the vadose and groundwater zones
  • Experience with field hydrological data collection, aquifer testing, and groundwater analysis
  • Experience with project appraisals, critically assessing data for accuracy and making objective assessments on exploration potential
  • Experience with core-logging and rock unit identification 
  • OSHA 40-hour HAZWOPER and MSHA 24-hour New Miner training preferred, but not required
