CSA Global's Technology Team includes industry experienced geologists, data management, GIS and Information Technology specialists who take a 'hands on' approach to assessing our clients' technology needs. CSA Global assists clients in adopting a structured approach to manage and optimise their technology for analysis and decision making by combining exploration and mining practices with the latest technology trends and mining specialist software products in market.

DATA MANAGEMENT SERVICES

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.

Our data services include the following:

  • Data collection and geological procedures
  • Validation of geological data and maps
  • Database design, implementation, management and hosting
  • Data auditing, validation and QA of data
  • Streamlined production tracking and management tools

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.

Our data visualisation services include the following:

  • Spatial project datasets, geoprocessing tasks and Web Mapping
  • QC charting and approval processes
  • 2D and 3D visualisation outputs
  • Cartography and GIS Drafting

DATA SYSTEMS

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.

Our online data and information services include the following:

  • Spring Data Rooms and Company Portals
  • Online information management systems
  • IT support, systems administration and training
  • Migration of traditional systems to efficient and cost effective private cloud IT.

TRAINING

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.
