Neal’s appointment to the team serves as part of the company’s ongoing strategy to grow and enhance the areas of due diligence, valuation, and independent reporting globally.
Manager of Corporate, Graham Jeffress stated: “Neal is a great addition to our team as he brings more than 30 years of experience in senior management, consulting, exploration, development, underground and open pit mining.”
“Neal’s broad experience and understanding across a range of commodities and deposit types, particularly gold and base metals, will enable him to add value; from exploration to mining geology, and help to drive successful outcomes for our clients”, said Graham.
Neal provides a range of consulting services, including code-compliant (JORC, NI43-101, VALMIN) reporting and valuation, technical studies, reviews, and management of exploration projects.
He has extensive knowledge of geological, geophysical, geochemical and exploration techniques and methodologies, combined with substantial experience in resource estimation, feasibility study, and mining of mineral deposits.
Neal has been engaged on several gold projects in South America, Canada, and Western Australia since commencing with CSA Global. His experience across exploration to mining will help to drive excellence in the domestic and international markets we operate in, added Graham.
Commenting on his appointment, Neal said: “After many years in a small consultancy, I am looking forward to the benefits of working alongside the many geoscientists, engineers and industry specialists at CSA Global and to undertaking some technically challenging consulting assignments with a range of new clients. After taking a ‘gap year’ in 2017, I return with renewed enthusiasm just as the industry takes a long-awaited upswing.”
Neal’s experience covers a broad range of consulting assignments, including the Pannawonica iron project, the Sumbawa porphyry copper project in Indonesia, and the Lynn Lake nickel-copper project in Canada.
