Synopsis:

In 2019 OZ Minerals released more than 2TB of company data challenging teams from around the world to compete for $1M in prize money by predicting mineralisation locations in the Mount Woods area of the Gawler Craton. The area is best known for the Iron-Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) Prominent Hill deposit. Three former colleagues, Randall Taylor, Karen Aurisch and Bronwyn Davies with many years of combined petroleum exploration experience, but relatively little direct experience of mineral exploration, joined forces to analyse the data and submit an entry. This talk will present their methodology and results and compare it to the brief public disclosure of the winning entry.

Also on Thursday the 14th of October there is a combined Industry, Society, Early Career and Student Networking function held at the Fox Hotel. The flyer with specific details is below and registration is through the AIG website
