Olympic Dam, the ultimate exploration model

Samso on Mining HQ Podcasts Ep.25 looks at the success of the Olympic Dam.

Exploration is the lifeblood of the mining industry. And when you find something as big as the Olympic Dam you'll want to learn as much as you can from it.

The Olympic Dam is one of the world's most significant deposits of gold, copper and uranium. Noel looks at why this is probably the best exploration example to date, why it's so successful and what key learnings we can take from this incredible model.

The size of this discovery is rare and the journey taken as well. However, the takeaway should be that exploration is a marathon and it is about testing theories. Companies should be allowed to be given time and the process to happen.

As David Upton pointed out in his book, the Olympic Dam is a story of creativity, persistence and faith in their abilities. These three words is what is the essence of the lesson from the discovery.
