HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGING IN GEOLOGY

The foremost airborne application of hyperspectral imagery provides mineral mapping for exploration clients in the mining, oil, gas and geothermal sectors, over large and often remote and inaccessible areas.

Furthermore, detailed and comprehensive mineral maps of the drill core samples provides an in depth understanding of the entire ore body. Specim customers have reported achieving savings worth hundreds of millions of dollars by using HSI technology.

HYPERSPECTRAL MINERAL MAPPING

How Does It Work

Geological samples, such as drill cores, can rapidly be mapped for nearly all minerals of commercial interest with hyperspectral imaging. Specim’s SisuROCK generates an image where each pixel contains a full spectrum, unique to each mineral of interest.

High speed, automated computer algorithms identify the minerals and convert the data into mineral maps of the samples depictured.
