Hyperspectral imagery is a powerful technology to locate minerals that are exposed or weathered in areas of residual soil.
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.
Geological samples, such as drill cores, can rapidly be mapped for nearly all minerals of a 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 depicted.
Specim customers have reported achieving savings worth hundreds of millions of dollars by using hyperspectral imaging technology.
