2017 Students in Mining & Energy Instrument Support Program Winners

January 24, 2017

The Students in Mining & Energy Instrument Support Program allows students from around the world interested in mining and energy disciplines to submit a research proposal involving spectral mineralogy. Winners will have the opportunity to borrow an ASD field spectrometer at no charge in order to pursue their research endeavors.

This year, we had a number of interesting geologic submissions so it is unfortunate to have to limit the number of winners that we are able to support.

ASD is quite pleased to announce the following seven global 2017 Students in Mining & Energy Instrument Support Program winners and their research topics:
