In light of the recent fluctuations in the price of its common shares, Goldspot Discoveries Corp. says it is not aware of any material corporate development or material change in the company’s business or affairs.
Goldspot believes that it remains in good financial condition, with strong revenues from its consulting and services arm. As indicated in its most recent interim consolidated financial statements for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, Goldspot recorded $914,473 in revenues while committing a total of $2.4-million in investments and royalty acquisitions. As of June 30, 2019, the company had $6.5-million in cash on hand and held another $2.8-million in investments.
Goldspot continues to partner with premier mining companies, offering front-to-back geological services including the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to create new layers of data and generate prospective drill targets.
Goldspot’s president and chief executive officer, Denis Laviolette, said: “This has been a crucial year for Goldspot. In February, we completed our listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, and earlier this month we launched our Resource Quantamental platform internally. Our progress in 2019 has been in line with our business plan and we are already looking forward to 2020. To date, we’ve focused inwardly on enhancing our technology and methodology with existing clients. We now feel that we’re ready to be more outward facing and provide the market with regular updates on our technology and our business. We are excited about this new phase of our corporate development, and are eager to communicate what makes Goldspot such a special disruptor for the mining industry.”
Since the beginning of 2019, Goldspot has expanded its target market to junior explorers. The company invests and acquires royalties in data-rich exploration companies, which in turn retain Goldspot and its team of 25 geologists and data scientists (including eight PhDs) to stitch, level and reinterpret a unique combination of both public and the explorer’s own proprietary data. Goldspot aims to bring together all available data and apply artificial intelligence to identify patterns and areas with a high chance of mineralization.
While Goldspot’s investments and service agreements are separate transactions, entering into both benefits the company by mitigating its investment risk through a partial return of capital. Goldspot’s client in turn benefits by receiving a suite of advanced geological services and an artificial-intelligence-driven exploration campaign.
Goldspot currently holds the following royalties:
- Pacton Gold Inc. — 0.5-per-cent NSR (net smelter return royalty) and $1-million option to buy another 0.5-per-cent NSR: Pacton’s Red Lake mineral claims are located between Pure Gold’s Madsen property and Great Bear Resource’s Dixie discovery. Pacton currently holds 16,630 hectares of prospective land. Its location in a data-rich district makes it an ideal candidate for artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify new discoveries. With the benefit of Goldspot’s assistance, Pacton Gold has selected its first priority target area for its coming 10,000-metre drill program at the Boyden prospect.
- Manitou Gold Inc. — 0.5% NSR and $1-million option to buy another 0.5% NSR: Manitou Gold’s Goudreau-Renabie area properties comprise a 22,500-hectare land package, set between Alamos Gold’s producing Island gold mine to the west and the past-producing Renabie mine to the east, that traverses 37 kilometres of contiguous lands along known deformation zones.
- New Found Gold Corp. — 1.0% NSR: New Found Gold has completed the largest ever consolidation of property within the Linear gold belt in the province of Newfoundland and now controls 17 known high-grade gold showings. Goldspot’s royalty covers an area of over 70,000 hectares.
- One Bullion Ltd. — 0.5% NSR: One Bullion’s primary focus is exploring the untouched Kraaipan greenstone belt as it extends north of the Botswana/South African border. Goldspot’s royalty covers an area of approximately 850,000 hectares.
Goldspot will continue to pursue its strategy of using artificial intelligence and traditional domain expertise to make optimal use of all available exploration data. The company aims to generate revenues from its work with producers sufficient to cover the majority of its G&A (general and administrative) and R&D (research and development) expenses, while continuing to invest and acquire royalties in juniors to which it will provide access to its robust team of geologists and data scientists. Goldspot will continue to leverage its technology — including its newly launched Resource Quantamental platform — and its position as a source of capital in depressed markets to develop a basket of equities and royalties.
Goldspot intends to keep the market informed regarding its pipeline of service contracts, investments and partnerships, as well as future technological developments and lines of business.
