According to the company, Imago's cloud-based platform enables the capture, cataloguing, and review of drilling core and chip images from any source, helping mining companies to make more confident, profitable decisions.
Seequent's Leapfrog, Oasis montaj, Target, and Minalytix MX Deposit products are already integrated with Imago's software, helping users to extract knowledge and learn from geoscientific images.
Imago co-founder Federico Arboleda said "As a small team in Phoenix and Perth, we're excited to join forces with Seequent, as this will now allow us to substantially scale Imago's solutions in mining and other markets.
"We founded Imago to help mining companies manage the high volume and size of geological images and unlock the great value in this geoscience imagery. Image data is an increasingly important source of data across the geosciences – and can come from potentially any source, including core photos, hyperspectral, aerial photos, drones, and handheld devices. It will become even more important to transform image data into knowledge as automation needs increase."
Seequent CEO Graham Grant said "It's an exciting step to welcome the Imago team on board to help advance Seequent's progression into the cloud.
"We're continually exploring ways to provide new technologies and solutions to solve workflow challenges, improve operational efficiency, and deliver greater value for our users who are working to solve some of the world's major civil, environmental, and energy challenges.
"This acquisition demonstrates Seequent's continued growth and our commitment to make a positive contribution to the industries we serve globally."
