It is with great pleasure CSA Global welcomes Senior Geologist, Antonio Celis to its Vancouver team in Canada.
Antonio has strong skills in exploration and evaluation program management, multivariate geochemical analyses and advanced mineral system modelling skills using leapfrog.
He spent his early career with BHP conducting exploration and evaluation programs in northern Chile.
Antonio then moved to Canada and completed his masters at MDRU in British Columbia investigating the geochemistry of porphyry systems in Northern BC and was involved with several companies targeting projects in this area.
After completing his masters in 2015, he successfully founded a project generation company focused on developing Latin American projects for the Canadian market.
For the last two years he has been honing his leapfrog modelling skills as a trainer and in technical user support in Vancouver, Quebec and Mexico.
President of Americas Stan Wholley said ” We are really excited to have Antonio join the team. He brings a really valuable technical skill-set to our integrated geoscience team here in the Americas. Along with his technical skills, he is multilingual in Spanish, French and Italian and has strong professional links in Latin America.”
