About Geoinformatics

Geoinformatics is a global exploration company which has developed a unique and innovative approach to mineral exploration. The Company is actively exploring several properties located in British Columbia, the Battle Mountain Trend region of Nevada, and Sinaloa, Mexico. The Company also has an extensive portfolio of other property interests and royalties covering a wide range of minerals in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and North America.

The Company has entered into a Master Strategic Alliance Agreement (the “Master Agreement”) with Kennecott Exploration Company under which it will use its scientific and technology platform (the “Geoinformatics Process”) which integrates data aggregation, data mining and three-dimensional modeling to identify and prioritize 30 or more exploration drill targets over the initial two years of the Master Agreement.

The Geoinformatics Process has been designed to assist in understanding and quantifying risk at a much earlier stage of the exploration cycle than has traditionally been available. The Company’s objective is to advance its properties to a stage of commercial development by applying a faster, less expensive and more reliable analytical methodology to resources exploration.
