Partner-Americas, Stan Wholley stated: “We are excited to have Andrew join the team in Vancouver. Although Andrew has worked with us over the last year on various roles, it is great to have him permanently on our global mining engineering team. His deep experience in managing open cut and underground mines around the globe (Australia, Canada, Mexico, Malaysia, PNG, Ghana) allows him to provide real insight to our clients whether it be in due diligence, strategy development, study management, or technical work on developing Mineral Reserves.
He is a mining engineer and mineral economist with more than 30 years of global mining exposure and is fluent in Spanish, the latter of which has served him well in executing projects in Latin America.
Most recently, Andrew has managed several projects for Anglo American, Quintana Resources, South32 (CMSA Colombia) through his private consultancy and has previously led the San Jose Mine in Mexico through Quintana Resources.
Andrew has spent a considerable amount of time working in Latin America with Canadian-based companies which have enabled him to master the Canadian regulatory environment and the investor ecosystem.
Part of our strategic planning in the Americas is to continue the development of a strong mine engineering team, and this is another critical step in our journey. Our strategy continues to win us a considerable number of PEA and PFS level studies and opportunities, so having another highly experienced principal mining engineer to help implement these projects is invaluable, said Stan.
Commenting on his appointment, Andrew stated: “I am very excited to join the CSA Global team and look forward to working with such a high calibre of mining professionals globally, and collaborating and generating new ideas across the globe.”
Andrew is a fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia.
