Corebox is passionate about using technology to empower mining investors. Our simple yet powerful online visualization tools make it easy to understand the significance of drill results.
Corebox has its roots firmly planted in the mining industry. Founder and CEO Jonathan Longe's first summer jobs were working in the field staking claims, splitting core and carrying rock samples. His father is a professional geologist who spent his entire career in mineral exploration with large companies, as a consultant and running a junior public company.
Years later, when Jonathan began investing in junior mining stocks, he recognized that many companies had difficulty getting investors to truly understand the significance of what they had discovered. He figured there had to be a better way to communicate with investors and paint an accurate picture of the drill results, something clearer and more digestible than the hard-to-read combination of static maps, limited sections and drill tables that were the norm.
Always a keen admirer of web-based technologies, Jonathan saw an opportunity to create interactive, visual models of drill results, something that was not previously available to investors. "People thought I was crazy", Jonathan recalled. "They thought companies wouldn't make their proprietary data available to the general public." But Jonathan's instincts were right, as numerous companies jumped at the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to transparency and gain credibility with investors.
We believe that Corebox provides a vital bridge between mining companies and investors. By creating a platform for the visual representations of drill results, Corebox delivers a more engaging, interesting and transparent way for mining companies to communicate. For the investor, Corebox creates a standardized platform for seeing and interpreting drill results. By demonstrating transparency companies gain credibility and that's a win for everyone.
