A world-class mathematical challenge and a chance to win $50,000 AUD

The Unearthed Phase-X Challenge, in partnership with BHP Billiton, is open to university students and research institutes around the world to devise an innovative and efficient solution to a defined challenge in open pit mining.

Participants will be given access to multiple sets of BHP Billiton’s operational data and asked to apply their mathematical minds to create the best algorithm for optimising open pit mining phases.

BHP Billiton has collaborated with Unearthed in support of its belief that innovation is essential to economic growth, and that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) provide the foundation for an innovative culture. BHP Billiton’s partnerships with leading universities and research organisations, and now its cooperation with Unearthed, support the application of STEM disciplines with the aim to improve safe productivity and competitiveness in the global resources industry.

As with all Unearthed events, innovators will own the intellectual property they create, making the Phase-X Challenge an exciting opportunity to solve a world-class mathematical challenge applicable to an industry of substantial scale and global significance.
