Meet CSA Global at AME Roundup 2018 in Vancouver, Canada

Published on December 19th, 2017

The CSA Global Vancouver team is looking forward to meeting you at the Association of Mineral Exploration (AME) Roundup between January 22-25, 2018 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, Vancouver, Canada.

This years theme titled New Generation of Discovery will bring together geoscientists, prospectors, investors, suppliers and First Nation partners to share ideas that will help shape the future of mineral exploration and development.

Principal Consultant, Dennis Arne will present at the Pre Conference on Saturday 20th January 2018; a one day short course on Using QA-QC Data to Minimise Risks in Exploration and Resource Estimation.

Dr. Neal Reynolds - Director - Exploration

Dr Neal Reynolds

Dr Reynolds is a geologist with almost 30 years’ experience in the mineral exploration industry from project generation to advanced project stage, encompassing targeting studies, project management, project due diligence, audit and optimisation, and expert reporting. Neal has worked on projects globally, with extensive experience in Asia, Africa, and Australia, and is particularly sought after for his specialist expertise in the metallogeny and mining industry in Southeast Asia. He has broad commodity experience and expertise in sediment-hosted and intrusive-related base metals and gold systems. He specialises in integrated mineral systems targeting at district to deposit scale, including the effective application of sedimentary geology, lithostratigraphy, structural geology, and alteration studies.

Dennis Arne 
Principal Consultant

Dennis has over (30) years’ experience in exploration in a wide range of environments in both the minerals and the petroleum industries, as an academic, and in geological surveys. In recent years he has been involved as a consultant in the development of exploration programs for precious and base metals exploration in Australia, North America, South America and the Middle East. Specifically, this has included contributing to exploration targeting reviews and understanding gold and base metals mineral systems, the design, management and interpretation of surficial geochemical surveys, the interpretation of lithogeochemical data, the preparation of QA/QC protocols, reviews of geochemical data quality, and contributions to NI43-101 and JORC/Valmin technical reports. He has published extensively in the areas of applied geochemistry, economic geology and thermal history analysis for tectonic and petroleum exploration applications.
