What we offer
We ensure database management and data extraction are based on a thorough understanding of our client’s needs. This understanding enables CSA Global to provide the very best data management solutions, tools and workflows for each client for all stages of the project, from conceptual through exploration to production. Our ability to leverage on clients’ existing systems and train current staff ensures that the highest level of integrity and quality are maintained for arguably your most important asset, your data.
Like most people in the mining and exploration sector, we work around the clock and the world, so our data and visualisation systems have moved away from traditional server-based IT systems. We now utilise the best available “cloud” infrastructure and software so we can deliver online solutions and collaborative systems customised to our clients’ needs.
To enable project collaboration, we have built on this technology, designing and implementing Spring Portals. Spring allows everyone in your company to access a centralised environment, no matter how complex the project, and have access to the latest data for smart decision making. We can even migrate your legacy IT systems to your own “private cloud’ built to suit your project scale and global access requirements.
Because we understand the unique needs of mining and how to maximise the benefits of technology, should your business change in size or scale, our experts are equipped to accommodate any volume of work to ensure clients keep meeting their targets. Mining and exploration software such as Datamine, Micromine, Whittle, Surpac, MineSched, ArcGIS, ioGAS, MapInfo and DataShed are some of the specialist software products that we support, understand and help to maintain for our clients.
Our experienced team offers clients authoritative advice on the implementation of data management solutions best suited to particular project, people, working environment, schedules and budgeting requirements. Our consultants can also provide the necessary skills development and training to optimise the use of these solutions.
All training offered assumes a basic knowledge of subject matter and the use of the client’s project specific data. We offer one-on-one mentoring and specialised courses such as those listed below.
- GIS for Geoscientists
- Data Visualisation 2D/3D
- Geological Modelling and Wireframing
- Geostatistical analysis and QA/QC
- Sampling Theory and Practices
If you have a specific training need that isn’t listed above please contact us to discuss customised training for any of the services we specialise in.
Data Visualisation & Analytics
Visualisation and analysis of field observations and geochemical results is of the highest priority in all stages of project development. To assist in streamlining this process we can help you implement workflows, many of which are automated, allowing your geoscientists access to data as soon as it becomes available.
This is possible, as once results have passed the quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) processes, outputs can be automated and made available in exploration and mining software some of which include spatial datasets, plans, sections, 3D plots and statistical QC charts.
“This project was conducted very professionally and CSA Global demonstrated a clear mastery of this work.The products generated will be of great value to prospectors and mineral exploration companies exploring in the Yukon.Thank you for CSA Global’s important and very useful contribution to the Yukon’s geoscience database.” Mike Power, Chairman, Technical Liaison Committee to the Yukon Geological Survey
YUKON GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROJECT
CSA Global was commissioned by the Yukon Geological Survey to generate a series of digital map products based on new geochemical data from the re-analysis of ~20,000 archived stream sediment samples covering ~290,000 km2 of the northern Cordillera in Canada.
