Explorer Challenge Deadline: 2019-04-30
Award: $1,000,000 AUD
Open to: Everyone*

Minerals and metals are crucial to the production of everyday products, but valuable deposits are becoming increasingly difficult to find. More resources are needed, but uncovering them is an intensive process. Geologists spend years collecting and analysing disparate data, frequently testing hypotheses, from huge areas of land, often for little or no reward.

Can you discover Australia’s next big mineral deposit? We are inviting innovators to test the limits of data science and geology, and develop new ideas about mineral exploration.
