Mike Rosko and Jon Whittier recently hosted M&A’s booth at Argentina Mining 2014. Held in Salta City from September 3–5, this conference featured internationally known speakers from the exploration, geology, and mining sectors, as well as dozens of exhibits showcasing mining-related products and services.
M&A has worked with Argentinean companies for many years, providing hydrogeologic support for investigations that involve estimating lithium resources within saline lakes. Mike, the general manager of M&A’s Santiago office, has served as the Qualified Person for such investigations. Jon (pictured below), a senior groundwater modeler, specializes in simulating these unique, brine aquifers. Because it is a key component in energy-efficient batteries, lithium has become an increasingly important mineral resource.
