Northern Star Resources Limited (ASX:NST), a leading Australian gold producer, has undertaken a geoscience initiative to improve their research capabilities with GeoClerk. In a strategic move, Northern Star has recently undertaken a monumental task to recover, digitize, and integrate over 6500 documents from their extensive repository of internal maps and sections. These crucial resources, previously languishing in obscurity within sea containers, abandoned buildings, and map archive rooms, are now being brought to light. Through their engagement with GeoClerk’s advanced platform, Northern Star has indexed and made fully searchable this treasure trove of information, enabling their geoscientists to access critical data from the company’s library alongside open file geological sources like WAMEX, Geoscience Australia, ASX announcements, Academia and the broader internet.
This exciting project signifies Northern Star’s commitment to optimizing their geoscience research efforts. The integration with GeoClerk equips them with powerful tools for comprehensive search and discovery, transforming their geoscience workforce’s capabilities and fostering collaboration between project teams. Notably, geoscientists can now explore previously inaccessible historical geology data, allowing for quicker data-driven decision-making for exploration activities.
Data security and compliance are a core part of this integration, with GeoClerk ensuring that Northern Star’s proprietary data remains safeguarded and confidential throughout the indexing and searchability project. In addition, the seamless integration with GeoClerk’s Azure AD Single Sign-On (SSO) plugin provides a hassle-free enterprise authentication and access solution. This ensures that all geoscientists at Northern Star can harness the benefits of the GeoClerk initiative with next to zero additional IT overhead for new-starters/leavers.
This arrangement sees Northern Star unlock significant value from their previously locked-away internal document libraries and all open file geological sources for Australia concurrently. The GeoClerk integration was carried out in conjunction with the internal digitisation initiative, with GeoClerk emerging as the most effective interface for accessing the results.
Dave Lyon, Geology Manager – Technical Development & Data at Northern Star Resources, shares his enthusiasm, stating, “Our partnership with GeoClerk has been valuable in enhancing our geoscience capabilities. Being able to search our old paper maps and extract insights from historical exploration work in the one place is a substantial benefit for our growth and discovery teams. GeoClerk have been easy to work with, regularly exciting us with valuable new features. We look forward to continued successful delivery in the future.”
