ARANZ Geo announces Mibex as Leapfrog distributor in Colombia

BOGOTÁ, Colombia and CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand, 25 June 2014 – ARANZ Geo Limited, developer of 3D geological modelling software Leapfrog®, announced today the appointment of new Colombian distributor, Mibex.

“The Mibex team are a well respected geological consulting firm, with extensive experience in the mining and groundwater industry”, said Nick Fogarty, Regional Director – Latin America, ARANZ Geo Limited. “The Mibex team will be invaluable to our clients and move the business forward in the rapidly growing Colombian market.”

The Mibex team is lead by Marco Nieto, an experienced geologist with a Master of Science in Geophysics and a P.Geo from Ontario, Canada. Mr. Nieto has worked in mineral and underground water exploration using geological and geophysics techniques throughout North and South America.

Yury Abreu is responsible for the commercialization of Leapfrog in Colombia, which includes introducing Leapfrog to new customers. Mr. Abreu has previous experience as a Project Director and Business Manager in Colombia and Central America.

Leapfrog is a leading 3D geological modelling software suite that has revolutionised the way geologists produce models and make decisions in the mining, hydrogeology and geothermal industries. Leapfrog's implicit modelling engine provides the power to construct geological models quickly, and allows models to be updated as more information becomes available. The result is greater geological confidence and reduced risk.

Nick Fogarty adds, “Mibex fit the stringent criteria we identified as essential to representing Leapfrog in Colombia. We are excited about working closely with their team, and look forward to growing this important market together.”
