On December 19, Goldcorp announced  the five ‘sharks’ who will judge the #DisruptMining challenge, an event designed to encourage innovators from all sectors to collaborate and accelerate solutions to some of the biggest challenges and opportunities in mining, an industry notoriously slow to innovate.

Goldcorp stated that the event provides an opportunity to showcase exponential technologies and ideas in front of a live audience of over one thousand industry leaders. An international panel of industry leaders representing mining, technology and venture capital will award one of three finalists the opportunity to negotiate a C$1 million investment in their technology, company or idea.

The submission portal is now open until January 16, and the #DisruptMining innovation accelerator challenge will take place March 4 at the PDAC conference in Toronto, Canada.
