Re: Junior exploration geologist position

Dear Mr Kenny,

I am writing to apply for the position of junior exploration geologist as advertised on

As a recent Bachelor of GeoScience graduate, I am looking forward to applying my skills in a practical setting. I have enjoyed the fieldwork component of my degree immensely and am keen to work in diverse and remote locations.

Having completed a variety of exploration projects in the field, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of geological mapping and the collection of field data, coupled with the ability to interpret this data and write detailed reports. This has fostered a keen interest in all aspects of mining and resources processes, including open pit and underground investigations, drilling and exploration design.

My skills include a good working knowledge of programs such as AutoCAD, ArcGIS, MapInfo/Discover and the MS Office suite. I work well as a member of a team but am also confident in assuming responsibility for tasks autonomously. Through my previous work in hospitality, I have gained excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to solve problems and handle challenging situations.

I feel that I am a strong candidate for this position due to my extensive experience in team environments and physically demanding roles, and my genuine passion for geology.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this application with you further, and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Stone
