The company was contacting other local employers and arranging workshops on CV writing and to discuss other support options.
The company was also expected to make a final decision this month on a revised structure for its exploration and geology team. Once that was made the company would know the impact on job numbers.
An OceanaGold staff member said almost half the 40 Waihī people working in exploration and geology faced uncertainty following an announcement at a meeting on January 15.
"We have mums and dads working with us, people with families who are tied to this area. We're really angry.
"We don't find out until March 1 who has got jobs and who doesn't ... so we're still fighting for our jobs."
