By now, you’ve likely heard of the ambitious plans for our new book “Visualizing Change”.
We’re aiming to take hundreds of pages of our best infographics, charts, and visualizations, and connect them with one universal theme: what are the fundamental forces shaping the business and investing world?
To make the book a reality we are funding through Kickstarter – and with just a few days remaining to reach our goal, only you can help us make it there.
Example Book Spreads
As we get closer to the funding deadline, we’ve been working hard to imagine how the book could look. Click below to see two exclusive sneak previews of how the pages of this infographic book will be laid out:
|"The War on Cash"|
The first six pages of this infographic, mocked up as it could appear in book.
|"The Tech Invasion"
How tech companies make their money, and are taking non-tech markets by storm.
The final product is guaranteed to capture your imagination with hundreds of pages of our best work to date, including 40+ pages of new, never-before-seen infographics!
One Potential Snag…
To date, we are still short of reaching our funding goal to make the book – and now there are less than 10 days left.
Want to help make sure it goes into production? Here’s how you can help:
- Make any pledge on our Kickstarter page here to help us reach our funding goal
- Share the campaign for the book on social media or with friends
- Instead of ordering one copy, order a bulk-pack of 10 or 50 (branded with your logo) and give to clients or friends
It’s zero-risk to pledge on Kickstarter, and credit cards don’t get charged unless we reach our funding goal.

Unlocking Earth’s Treasures with Mineral Exploration
There are untold treasures in the Earth’s surface waiting for discovery. Skeena Resources is opening the vault in the Golden Triangle at Eskay Creek.
Unlocking Earth’s Treasures with Mineral Exploration
There are untold treasures of gold, silver, copper, and much more that lie beneath the Earth’s surface, awaiting discovery—and it takes mineral exploration and the right team to unlock this hidden wealth from the depths.
Mining exploration company Skeena Resources is opening the vault to the treasures of British Columbia’s Golden Triangle at the famous Eskay Creek property.
Following in footsteps of other successful mineral exploration efforts, Skeena is proving there is more value to unlock at Eskay Creek. The Golden Triangle is already home to some of the most productive mines in the world.
Keys to the Vault: Turning Discoveries into Resources
A mineral exploration company such as Skeena conducts geological studies to turn a discovery into a mineable resource. As each mineral deposit becomes better understood, new value is unlocked and its economic value increases.
The mining industry uses three resource classifications for a mineral discovery, based on the amount and proximity of drill holes.
Each one of these categories represent the confidence with which an economic source of minerals exists. The “Inferred” classification is the lowest level of confidence that a certain amount of ore exists in a location while “Measured” is the highest.
Companies drill holes and pull out small samples of the ground in order to discover and measure the continuity and grade of a mineral occurrence. The results of drilling provide more and more data for improving the understanding of a deposit. Each study eventually cuts the key to unlock the treasure below.
Grade is King: The Higher the Grade, The Lower the Costs
In order for a mineral deposit to be valuable it must pass the grade. The amount of the sought-after mineral within a particular amount of rock is known as the ore grade. Typically, the higher the ore grade, the more profitable a mine can be.
Skeena Resource’s Eskay Creek has a grade of 4.3 grams per tonne ‘g/t’, making it 3x higher than the global average grade of open pit mining projects. This could potentially make it all the more unique and valuable to investors.
Unlocking the Vault
Gold’s value is in part due to its rarity. The precious metal cannot be artificially produced and is only found deep inside the vault that is the Earth’s crust. This makes mineral exploration an extremely rewarding business if a discovery is made.
In terms of statistics, the odds are 1 in 10,000 that greenfield exploration produces a profitable mine—and odds are even more remote for a mineral occurrence to become a world-class mine. Further, if a gold deposit is actually found, there is only a 10% chance it will have enough gold justify further development.
Through targeted mineral exploration, Skeena Resources is proving there is more golden treasure to uncover at the legendary Eskay Creek.
