Leni-Maths – a new branch of mathematics for extrapolating numbers with almost no primary data points ( ref Horse Hill)

John Meyer of SP Angel today admits that he has been analysising resource companies wrongly for years. Having looked at UK Oil & Gas's  (UKOG) Horse Hill data, John has stumbled across the new science of Leni-Maths. John writes:

We realise we have been calculating reserves and resource all wrong for many years now.

There are other more complex statistical models like Kriging, polygonal, inverse distance techniques for the computation of reserves and resources.

SP Angel analysts have been experimenting with Leni-Maths and have concluded this is a far more convenient and economic method of statistical computation

Today’s trial goes as follows:

Leni-Maths;  we noticed 25 Chinese visitors in a shop earlier today and the shop is around 50 sq ft in floor area

The United Kingdom is almost exactly 2.6222 trillion sq ft according to Google, which knows all things

Our Leni-Maths computation calculates that there should be some 1.3111 trillion Chinese visitors in the UK today based on our small statistical sample.

Each Chinese visitor spends on average £2,688 per visit with at least 20% of that going to the UK government in the form of tax receipts

Leni-Maths tells us that £2,688 x 1,3111 trillion visitors x 20% tax = £704 billion

The UK national debt is £1.6 trillion => Leni-Maths indicates to us that the number of Chinese visitors in the UK should repay the national debt within a couple of visit

Leni-Maths is Genius and we hope the Nobel Prize committee will consider this breakthrough in statistical mathematics


John says that he does not want the Nobel prize personally but thinks that it should go to the man responsible for this breakthrough in advanced mathematics, the man himself, Mr David Lenigas.

  2. This is very funny.I’m invested in only one of Big Dave’s vehicles and it’s the one where he actually has the least influence in terms of what goes on. Curiously, it’s my belief he’s found a gem in BCN, but as for the rest!
    I lost a packet on Templar Minerals and can clearly recall how the supposed iron ore deposits in Brazil were going to be worth millions.(I’m not even sure he visited the place,although I’m prepared to be corrected) Eventually, he threw in the towel and the company morphed into another wild success, OTC.
    If he ends up making me millions by virtue of my substantial holding in BCN, I’ll buy the bloke as many filthy Aussie lagers as he can fit down his neck. In the meantime, I believe the correct expression is ‘buyer beware’.

    It could be all that dark matter they keep prattllng on about

  4. Spags ………. naw ………… dark matter………. thats what people see when they have had their head up Del Boy Lemongas’s arse to long . There are no primary data points up there either .
