The Gawler Challenge
ExploreSA: The Gawler Challenge is a global online competition from the Government of South Australia. The challenge is to identify or predict areas of potential mineralisation within the Gawler region, using any technique.
South Australia is an incredibly rich region for minerals, hosting some of the best deposits in the world. On top of that, new discoveries have recently been made by re-processing old data, such as BHP's Oak Dam West. All of this makes us really confident you'll be able to find more through this challenge!
The challenge is open to everyone, but best suited to geologists, data scientists, mathematicians and keen explorers! We encourage you to get involved if you're interested in learning about mineral exploration, want to give something a go and get feedback, get recognition for your work and team, or simply to win one of the epic cash prizes! This is a real way for you to make a fundamental difference to mineral exploration in South Australia, and demonstrate your work on a global stage.
