Intermap Technologies (IMP:TSX) exploded 25% Tuesday as its epic rally in July continues.

Intermap hit its 52-week low of $0.18 on June 28, 2016 and has now more than doubled. Intermap hit a high of $0.39 per share Tuesday on over 300,000 shares traded.

Intermap is a global provider of location based (geospatial) solutions, and provided an update on its previously announced $175 million contract for the creation, operation and maintenance of a national spatial data infrastructure (“SDI”) program on July 5th. It was this announcement is what sparked the recent explosion in the company’s liquidity and share value.

On July 5th, we published an article titled Intermap Technologies jumps 33% on $175 million contract update, where we wrote, “The size of this contract continues to drive interest in Intermap if only for the reason the company’s market cap currently sits at roughly $30.3 million.”
