New resource industry consultant office offers global access to Indonesia

JAKARTA: Following 15 years of business development in Indonesia, South East Asia’s largest nation, leading international resource industry consultancy, CSA Global, has opened a new full-service facility in Jakarta to assist clients in a variety of gold, nickel laterite, tin, base metals and coal projects.

“Our investment is significant and long-term and reflects the dynamic growth and importance of the Indonesian minerals and energy sectors to our company and clients,” says Mr Jeff Elliott, Managing Director, CSA Global, who is visiting Indonesia for the official opening.

“Our corporate focus on international standards assists management of increasingly complex local projects as well as adding an important level of comfort to international and domestic investors and financiers,” adds Jakarta-based President Director of PT CSA Global Indonesia, Mr John Bishop,

CSA Global is committed to the international resource audit program known as the JORC-code and has worked with Indonesian geologists and mining engineers to encourage its formal institutional adoption by Indonesian industry bodies and stock exchange.

CSA Global’s wholly-owned Indonesian subsidiary provides in-house expertise backed by a network of local and international experts who are highly experienced in exploration, resource evaluation, mine geology, data management and mine development.

Reflecting Indonesia’s position as the world’s leading coal trader, the team includes coal geologists and mining engineering professionals with the knowledge to explore for and develop coal mines.

“While we have access to the leading international experts, we are also recruiting the cream of Indonesia’s resource professionals to secure our business,” Mr Bishop explains.

“Our investment is as much about people as offices and equipment and we expect that Indonesian members of our team will enhance their expertise and take up international opportunities through the CSA Global network.”
