An exploration company operating in South America was having a hard time explaining the opportunity and value position of the under-explored blocks they owned. It turns out that the foothills region they work within is directly analogous to the the Canadian foothills strata, so it was not a huge leap to conclude that there were oil and gas formations similar in production magnitude yet-to-be discovered.
The challenge was that they didn’t have any maps that could clearly demonstrate this. I was brought in to help illustrate this advantage for the non-technical investors in their audience. I developed a series of maps that went from macro to micro, all with the proper level of detail and accuracy their geologist team demanded.
