HeroX-Integra-Gold-Rush-Data-Science Challenge

Gold Mining and Data Mining combined!

Herox is launching one of the largest ever mining industry incentive prize competitions to hunt down the next big gold discovery in Val-d’Or, Canada.

Opened in 1935, the Lamaque mine remained in operation for 50 years, processing more than 4.5 million ounces of gold. It remained relatively forgotten for nearly 30 years, until Integra Gold purchased it in October, 2014.

Along with the purchase came 6 terabytes of information, spanning 75 years of mining history. This database is being turned to the public to help unlock its value through innovative and comprehensive solutions.

The Integra Gold Rush Challenge invites people from around the world, from any background to analyze this data and win prizes totaling CAD $1 million.
