Meet the team of technical specialists responsible for determining the best of the best

Plus, join us for the ExploreSA: Gawler Challenge Awards Presentation, a unique online event. 

The ExploreSA: Gawler Challenge recently drew to a close with over 2,000 registered participants - an enormous international effort to provide novel solutions to an enduring industry problem: large-scale economic deposits are becoming increasingly scarce and new exploration techniques are needed to locate them.

This extraordinary challenge saw teams from over 100 countries working together to complete submissions that utilise enormous public data sets as provided by the South Australian Government. The challenge sponsor, South Australia's Department for Energy and Mining, now has a great deal to look forward to as the judging panel start the enormous undertaking of evaluating all of those submissions and determining worthy winners of eight award categories.

This  judging panel offers advanced skills across a range of disciplines including data science, geology, exploration, academia, government, and software development. The panel is also widely distributed, with many of our expert panel members joining us from across Australia to participate.

So, without further adieu...
