Next Generation Explorers Award (NGEA™)
The 2021 finalists of this international geoscience student competition will present their submissions on transforming modern, pre-competitive global datasets into their interpretation of the subsurface geology and mineralisation targets.
They will be judged by a panel of mining industry leaders and professionals based on innovation, data integration, exploration significance, team collaboration and diversity.
This is a two-part event. The first will feature the six finalist presentations and the second event will be an interview and panel discussion with the judges and teams.
The NGEA™ was founded in honour of Frank Arnott (1951-2009), an exceptional exploration industry leader who championed innovative techniques that maximised the value of multidisciplinary data underpinning mineral exploration campaigns worldwide.
Tuesday, March 9, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm EST
Wednesday, March 10, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST
