Recruitment System

Base Resources is committed to prioritising employment for local communities.

The Company utilises an employment system that is specifically designed to maximise employment opportunities and project benefits for local communities by giving preference to those residing in the immediate environs of a mine. Through a ‘fencing system’, established in consultation with governments and local communities, progressively lower priority is given to those living further away from the mine.
