Deadline: 2020-07-31 Award: $250,000 Open to: Everyone*
Can you find South Australia’s next big mineral deposit? Minerals and metals are crucial for creating the products we use every day, but deposits are becoming increasingly difficult to find. We are inviting innovators to interrogate world-class open-file datasets and push the limits of geology and data science to uncover new mineral discoveries!
The Gawler Challenge will run from March 2nd to July 31st, 2020, giving innovators 5 months to search through the data and generate new targets. The challenge is suitable for geologists, data scientists or anyone else looking to get involved! Your approaches will be assessed by a panel of expert judges to determine the winners of multiple prize categories. The targets you produce will be made available to the public, to incentivize exploration across the Gawler and help you be part of driving new discoveries!
