Join the Perpetua Resources Team

We will need hundreds of hardworking men and women to help us develop a responsible, modern mining project.

Perpetua Resources will need to hire employees to help with construction, operations, reclamation and closure. During operations, we anticipate we will need more than 500 people to join our team. Positions include management, administration, equipment operators, general laborers, mechanics, electricians, engineers, surveyors, geologists and environmental and safety specialists.

We are committed to hiring, contracting and purchasing supplies and services locally whenever possible. We will always look to Valley County first for resources and talent.

During operations, Perpetua anticipates providing between $48 million to $51 million in annual payroll with average wages significantly higher than the median household income of Valley, Adams and Idaho counties. A study conducted by a national economic consulting firm shows Perpetua Resources’ job creation will contribute a positive economic benefit to the region.

Perpetua Resources’ commitment to hiring locally means we will support training opportunities for Idahoans throughout the life of our project by working directly with schools, community colleges and the Idaho Department of Labor.

We are currently working with the Stibnite Advisory Council to better understand what a potential workforce for the Stibnite Gold Project could look like and what possible community needs may arise. If you would like to help, please share your thoughts by clicking here.
