PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA – November 14, 2022 – CSA Global (an ERM Group company) is pleased to announce the appointment of Partner – Canada, Dr Ayman Tawadrous.
Ayman, a Toronto-based mining engineer with over 30 years of experience has worked in various operational roles before joining CSA Global and brings a wealth of specialised knowledge in drill and blast, with a particular focus on specialised blasting techniques applicable to block caving and in situ recovery. The latter are both proving to be of interest to the mining community and are currently two of the most energy-efficient methods in mining.
Partner – Americas, Nigel Fung said: “In his new role with CSA Global, and collaborating closely with our colleagues at ERM, Ayman will undertake a critical role in promoting our core capabilities across our geological and mining engineering services and will play an integral role in managing and growing our Canadian operations.”
Building on CSA Global’s strong in-house geometallurgy and geochemistry capabilities, Ayman will help clients plan for maximum efficiency and minimal environmental impact from their mining operations. He will be instrumental in elevating the position of ERM in conjunction with CSA Global as the world’s only end-to-end (exploration to mine closure) mining consulting service, said Nigel.
Prior to joining CSA Global, Ayman was the Chief Engineer at an underground operation directing mining engineering and geotechnical engineering. He provided direction and guidance to the technical team, and led all mining engineering activities during his tenure, including direction and expert guidance to the technical team, development of engineering standards and procedures, and mentoring junior mine engineers.
With a background in blast analytics, he has helped identify, implement, and manage computational and data science research collaboration opportunities.
Commenting on his appointment, Ayman stated: “I am thrilled to be joining CSA Global and to be a part of a leading industry consulting group. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities associated with my new role and supporting business growth and expansion in the Americas and APAC regions. I look forward to reconnecting with old clients and connecting with new clients and business partners.”
