Nearly 30 years’ experience in mining and environmental geostatistics, mineral resource and reserves estimation, audits, and reviews, and conditional simulation studies of different scales and purposes. Mr. Rossi has worked in over 100 different mining projects at various stages of development and operations around the world, including precious and base metals, multi-element deposits (Au, Ag, Cu, Fe, Pb, Zn, etc.), laterite-type deposits, sedimentary deposits (uranium, coal), Iron hematite and magnetite deposits, and industrial minerals such as limestone, nitrate, iodine, lithium and graphite deposits.
Mario has also worked on a large number of environmental projects applying geostatistics, mostly in the United States. He has also taught over 50 short courses in different circumstances and for varied audiences, including University courses and as Guest Lecturer (bachelor, graduate, and post-graduate level courses at Colorado School of Mines – USA; Universita’ degli Studi di Bari – Italy; Universidad Católica del Norte – Chile; Universidad Nacional de Colombia – Medellín; Universidad Nacional de San Luis – Argentina; Universidad Nacional de San Juan – Argentina); short courses for private companies; and public one or two week-long courses and workshops. Mr. Rossi has published over 50 papers, mostly on topics related to geostatistics and mineral resource estimation and simulation.
Mario is the co-author of the book “Mineral Resource Estimation” (Rossi, M., and Deutsch, C., ed. Springer), published in January 2014.
