Welcome to the Employment Page for Hillgrove’s operations in South Australia!

Expressions of Interest Always Welcome Please.

The Kanmantoo Cu-Au Mine is currently in care and maintenance whilst the possibility of a new underground operation is being evaluated.

In the past, we operated with approximately 300 personnel staffing the mine, and no “fly in/fly out” or related accommodation and catering. This is because we are located in a highly populated area, with staff coming from the local townships in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Some choose to live in the city or by the beach. Kanmantoo presents a unique opportunity rarely seen within the resources sector - an opportunity for applicants seeking to establish a balance between their work and personal commitments, who wish to become part of an energetic and committed team.

We welcome applications from enthusiastic top-performers, with the requisite skills and experience that are ready to go to the next level in their careers. With a ‘Local-Hire’ policy applying to the Kanmantoo Copper Mine, you must live nearby or be prepared to relocate (at your own expense) to the area to be considered for employment. We strongly believe in forming direct relationships with our local community and providing opportunities when possible.

So follow our LinkedIn site for updates on our future business and register your interest in future opportunities with Hillgrove!


We advertise vacancies on Seek (www.seek.com.au), or you can send your resume to our Human Resources Team via email employment@hillgroveresources.com.au

Please note: Agency referrals will not be accepted.


We offer limited Graduate and Vocational opportunities in Mine Geology and Mine Engineering, and Apprenticeship opportunities in Mechanical Fitting and Electrical. When placements become available at the Kanmantoo Copper Mine we will advertise them on Seek.

Graduate students from Adelaide universities are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) regarding research projects they may wish to undertake in relation to the Mine. Each EOI will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine merit, relevance to the site and availability of Hillgrove staff to assist in the project.

General work experience placements are not provided on site.

Due to our projects being located in such highly populous areas and in alignment with our ‘Local Hire’ policy, Hillgrove does not offer relocation assistance, placements for overseas students or consider applicants who do not have the right to work in our project locations.
