Australia To Host Crowd Sourced Mineral Exploration

The Marshall Liberal Government will be the first government globally to host a $250,000 crowd sourced open data competition to fast-track the discovery of mineral deposits in South Australia.

ExploreSA: The Gawler Challenge partners 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.

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.
