Jim is a Principal Geotechnical Engineer with degrees in geological and geotechnical engineering. He has more than 35 years experience in the design, construction, operation and closure of mining projects across the globe. His areas of expertise include site investigation, permafrost characterization, dam (tailings and water retention) design and inspection, tailings management planning and water balance, waste dump design and monitoring, diversion channel design, soil cover design, and mine closure planning, design and permitting. Mr. Cassie has played the role of project manager, design lead, engineer of record and technical reviewer for several tailings dams. He was located in Santiago, Chile for three and a half years and worked on numerous high altitude mining (cold regions) projects in Chile and Argentina. In addition, he has undertaken dam (tailings) safety reviews and sits on an independent review panel regarding mine waste integrity and safety for three mines (operating and closed) in northern Canada. He has worked on cold regions and mining projects in all three northern Canadian territories, BC, Alaska, Far East Russia, Chile, Argentina, Suriname and Kyrgystan.
At RoséGeo, we believe that proper management of a mine's waste is as critical as management of the resource itself. We are dedicated to supporting our clients manage their mine waste responsibly, to help protect the public, the environment, and themselves.
