In a topsy-turvy decade for many mining consulting groups around the world, one firm has moved inexorably up to the top tier of the vital service sector. And CSA Global has every intention of cementing its place in the highest echelon of international firms.
A group with a 30-year pedigree as a leading independent geological consultancy, CSA Global has built high-level capability and become a force in the mining study and operational improvement segments of the market. On the back of a growing pipeline of work in the region, it is expanding its capabilities in the American market by establishing a business base in Toronto to complement its existing office in Vancouver and operations in Nicaragua. The latter came about after being awarded a key advisory role in 2015 in the US$50 billion Nicaragua Canal project.
Elsewhere, CSA Global is in the thick of surging gold exploration activity and resource reporting in Australia and other parts of the world such as Africa, central Asia and North America. And it has a busy, renowned specialty minerals team working with a number of the high-profile lithium, graphite and cobalt project proponents.
