For mining exploration geologists, these improvements translate into faster data capture at exploration targets and drilling sites. The improved data quality provided by the ASD TerraSpec 4 Hi-Res mineral spectrometer also allows for accurate assessment of low-concentration and low-reflectance minerals, like iron-containing minerals such as serpentines and chlorites, which were previously difficult to measure. Benefits include:
- Enhanced optical configuration provides more precise spectral results for superior spectrum clarity and definition.
- Industry leading performance in the SWIR 1/SWIR 2 regions for unparalleled alteration mineral identification.
- Standard ruggedized steel covered fiber optic cable ensures consistent spectral quality.
- No need for sample prep, which means fast field scans.
