Founded in 2018, the DigiGeoData team is responsible for pioneering modern mining cartography as the creators of the mineral exploration industry’s global standard regional maps.

“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 Denis Laviolette, Executive Chairman and President of GoldSpot. “Glen and the DigiGeoData team are responsible for revolutionizing the mapping industry. Now, DigiGeoData alongside 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. We believe the Atlas platform will become an industry staple alongside the addition of new visual data layers to CEO.CA. From senior producers to junior retail, the newly built platform will take decision making within the exploration space to a whole new level.”
“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 Glen Jones, President & CEO of DigiGeoData. “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. DigiGeoData is excited to be part of this group and we look forward to collaborating and building this unique opportunity.”
