Aberdeen Minerals Ltd is a private company exploring for battery metals and critical minerals in North East Scotland. The company has recently raised £1.1 million to fund its work in Aberdeenshire researching and exploring Ni-Cu-Co-PGE magmatic sulphide deposits including a maiden drilling programme at the Arthrath Project, the largest known nickel deposit in the UK and a safeguarded site for mineral development. Drilling will verify and expand upon previous drilling carried out there by Rio Tinto in the 1970s and will specifically investigate higher grade nickel-copper-cobalt mineralized zones.

Our primary project area is to the north of Ellon, but we have exploration targets across the North East. As our portfolio of exploration and development work expands we will have a number of diverse opportunities for people who want to work with us. If you are interested in working in the roles outlined below, we want to hear from you. Experience is an advantage but training will be given to the right people.
