Watch this space - ExploreSA: The Gawler Challenge
In 2020, SA will host a $250,000 crowdsourced open data competition to fast-track the discovery of mineral deposits in South Australia.
ExploreSA: The Gawler Challenge will partner with open innovation platform, Unearthed, in a world-wide call for geologists and data scientists to uncover new exploration targets in the state’s Gawler Craton region.
Explorers! 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!
Using the Geological Survey of South Australia’s historical records, primary data and research, the competition combines geological expertise with new mathematical, machine learning and artificial intelligence to increase the number of potential drill targets across central South Australia. Find out more here.
The competition will open in early March 2020, so watch this space for more information.
