Artificial intelligence company GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. Dec. 16 announced the acquisition of DigiGeoData Inc. to bolster its digital science and AI mineral discovery capabilities with mapping software.
"The acquisition of DigiGeoData is integral to our overall strategy of bringing prospectors, explorers, as well as institutional and retail investors enhanced transparency and decision making in the discovery process," said GoldSpot Discoveries Executive Chairman and President Denis Laviolette.
Founded in 2018, DigiGeoData has quickly developed into a pioneer for modern mining cartography as the creator of the mineral exploration industry's global standard regional maps. Presently, the company is developing its premier "Atlas" platform, a software-based Geographic Information System (GIS) interactive mapping interface alongside its "Maps" distribution business used by over 300 clients.
In its database, DigiGeoData has created maps for 23 regions including Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia, the Athabascan Basin, and Newfoundland, to name a few.
Clients using the company's services have been able to add another valuable resource to navigate their respective land packages, and investors can easily examine the data in a completely interactive and user-friendly format with its latest Atlas platform.
"We believe the Atlas platform will become an industry staple alongside the addition of new visual data layers to CEO.CA," added Laviolette. "From senior producers to junior retail, the newly built platform will take decision making within the exploration space to a whole new level."
DigiGeoData's full suite of software and services include:
• DigiGeoAtlas – A software as a service (SaaS) based online GIS interactive mapping interface that spatially links and displays data from DigiGeoMaps and DigiGeoData. Atlas is currently offered as a free and paid subscription service with a full ensemble of seamless claim data, 43-101 reports, property and assets, geological layers, and additional features.
• DigiGeoMaps – The industry standard, DigiGeoData's maps provide an overview both on a global and country scale or a more focused regional basis that has significant exploration and mining activity. Over 300 mineral exploration companies have sponsored DigiGeoData maps so far through physical and electronic distribution.
• DigiGeoData – The data is the source of information that feeds DigiGeoMaps and DigiGeoAtlas. All accessible data is queried and displayed from the database. Data includes current resources, production, and technical reports searchable by several parameters.
DigiGeoData President and CEO Glen Jones has more than 40 years of experience in mining, including 17 years working with and developing comprehensive mineral data solutions. His impressive resume includes the "Hot Play" mineral activity maps, which became a global standard; co-founder of IntierraRMG, resource sector information and reports provider; and director of mining and metals database at SNL Metals & Mining after that gold mining intelligence firm bought IntierraRMG.
"As someone who has spent most of his career providing data and spatial solutions I watched in amazement as GoldSpot announced its recent acquisitions, especially CEO.CA," said Jones. "The vision of Denis and his team to bring together a new group of companies and create a suite of products that combines the strengths of each, confirms the innovation and foresight that has made GoldSpot so successful to date."
Led by Jones, the DigiGeoData team boasts more than 100 years of combined experience developing data solutions for the mining industry.
"Glen and the DigiGeoData team are responsible for revolutionizing the mapping industry," said Laviolette. "Now, DigiGeoData and GoldSpot, will expand their initial offering with innovative and interactive mapping interfaces, providing never before seen layers of claims and technical data that will integrate within our asset portfolio."
"DigiGeoData is excited to be part of this group and we look forward to collaborating and building this unique opportunity," Jones added.
