Meet CSA Global Technical Director, Dr Pim van Geffen at the SEG 2022 Conference: Minerals for Our Future between August 27-30, 2022 at the Sheraton Hotel in Denver, Colorado, United States.
The world is undergoing an unprecedented acceleration in demand for most of the metals and minerals that we discover, assess, and are mining at production levels that are already close to the highest in history. The future of economic geology revolves around retooling our skill sets, our prospects, and our mines to answer the call.
This year’s conference will be remembered in the coming decade as a pivotal collection of economic geology research that will form the basis of our industry going forward.
Dr Pim van Geffen
Pim is a professional geoscientist with more than 15 years’ experience in mineral exploration and mining across the globe. He is a leader in the fields of geochemistry and geometallurgy in the Americas and is passionate about innovation and improved business practice in the sector. Across exploration to operations, closure and remediation, Pim focuses on rock-property data integration and process optimization throughout the mining value chain. He sees tremendous potential value in unlocking hidden information through geoscientific data gathered and not used to its full potential to characterize ore and waste, minimize operational risk, and maximize return. Pim has been a significant contributor across the industry; having delivered a plethora of public short courses and conference talks on geochemical data analysis and its geomet applications. He has provided in-house training to mining companies and academic institutions on ioGAS software, portable X-ray fluorescence analysis and infrared reflectance spectroscopy, and has served as a guest lecturer at the University of British Columbia and Queen’s University.
