Innovative solutions and approaches

Looking at a problem from a different lens can result in unique solutions and new ways for the mining ecosystem to work together.

Innovative events such as hackathons are an excellent way for you to collaborate directly with suppliers to solve problems. Hackathons, which originated from the tech industry, are designed to develop rapid prototype solutions.

Unearthed is a pioneer in bringing Hackathons to resources industry. They bring together software developers, designers and industry insiders come together to develop prototype solutions to resource sector problems – in 54 hours, over the course of one weekend.

In 2015, Unearthed connected more than 500 innovators to challenges from over 20 government supporters and notable industry players such as Anglo American, Iluka Resources, Gold Fields, OZ Minerals, CSIRO and BHP Billiton.
