Welcome to Drillanthropy

Drillanthropy harnesses the power of the crowd and puts a data-science spin on how we have traditionally generated exploration targets and is a new addition to OZ Minerals’ project generation toolkit.

Data-driven exploration models are proliferating across South Australia as a direct result of the Explorer Challenge, the SA Government’s Gawler Challenge, and renewed interest in machine learning across the mining industry. Drillanthropy is our way of connecting these new ideas to the funding needed to test them.

Drillanthropy applications

Applications for Drillanthropy funding are currently open to any tenement holder in Australia with a copper target backed by quality data science.

Successful applications will see their targets drilled. All positive drilling results will be further assessed for the opportunity to partner with OZ Minerals.
