GoldSpot's President and Chief Executive Officer Denis Laviolette commented: "We are pleased with our ongoing progress during the most recent quarter. With our client base taking advantage of the hot summer weather to execute their drilling programs, we took advantage of that seasonal sales cycle to focus on further refining our technology and generating new business. Our consulting revenue is up and we are concentrating our efforts on a strong finish to a pivotal year in our history."
Mr. Laviolette added, "We are proud of our work on Resource Quantamental, which we deployed internally in September. In developing RQ, we have created valuable intellectual property and compiled an extensive dataset that will serve GoldSpot in its other projects. For now, however, we do not see a clear path to monetizing the platform and have therefore decided to refocus our resources internally. As a result, IFRS requires us to impair the asset. We remain confident, however, in RQ's potential and continue to explore avenues to advancing it towards commercialization."
