GoldSpot President and Chief Executive Officer Denis Laviolette commented: "Our consultancy revenue is important as it covers a significant portion of our overhead and allows us to dedicate budgets to R&D and hiring quality personnel. Our technical team is growing in size and expertise, and our technology only becomes more advanced with every contract and investment we are involved with.
In addition, we are very excited by the evolution of our mandate to now include the deployment of capital into junior explorers and the acquisition of royalties. We have already proven to be a valuable source of capital for explorers who want to drill even in these depressed markets.
GoldSpot Discoveries allows investors to benefit from our equity and royalty resource holdings: which are uniquely driven by AI. We are not only disrupting how mineral exploration is performed, but how investors can participate in discovery."
In addition, GoldSpot announces the appointment of Adam Allouba as corporate secretary. Mr. Allouba is a partner in the Corporate group of Dentons Canada, the world's largest law firm. Mr. Allouba's practice focuses primarily on mining and technology issuers listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). He is a member of the TSXV's Quebec advisory committee, the securities committee of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) and the AI advisory board of Dawson College in Montreal.
