Welcome to The Newcrest Crowd.
The Newcrest Crowd is an ongoing program to work with the best innovators worldwide and identify, develop and implement new solutions for real-world, multi-million dollar applications. This online competition invites companies and individuals from around the world to share solutions and approaches to address this specific challenge for Newcrest.
Newcrest is the largest gold producer listed on the Australian Securities Exchange and one of the world's largest gold mining companies.
We focus on long-term value creation with an emphasis on three key value drivers: maintaining low costs, growing reserves and production and using capital efficiently.
Newcrest's mission is to deliver superior returns from finding, developing and operating gold/copper mines. Our vision is to be the Miner of choice™. We will lead the way in safe, responsible, efficient and profitable mining.
Individuals and companies who participate in this challenge will have the opportunity to the following:
Gain exposure within Newcrest – Your proposed solution will be reviewed by Newcrest's judging panel which may include representatives from Newcrest operations, engineering, digital, technology, HSE and innovation teams. Please refer to the panel of judges for this specific competition.
Connect with Newcrest leaders – The top proposals will be shortlisted and the top teams will have the opportunity to virtually meet the Newcrest panel of judges.
