The region is still underexplored and shows great potential!

Best exploration proposals will be rewarded with Cash Prizes: First Prize 40 000€, Second Prize 20 000€, third prize 10 000€ and fourth to eight prizes 2 000€. The independent jury will evaluate all proposals and the winners will be announced at the Prospectors and Developers Conference March 2016 (PDAC 2016) in Toronto, Canada. The jury members are Paul Evins, Ph.D. (structural geology) WSP Sweden; Denis Schlatter, Ph.D. (geochemistry) Helvetica Exploration Services Switzerland and Turo Ahokas, M.Sc. (geophysics) Independent Senior Geophysicist. Markus Ekberg, M.Sc. (geology), CEO of Endomines, Ab coordinates jury activities.
