The Students in Mining & Energy Instrument Support Program allows Masters and Ph.D. students from around the world involved in mining and energy disciplines to submit a research proposal involving spectral mineralogy. Winners receive the opportunity to borrow an ASD TerraSpec® spectrometer at no charge in order to pursue their research endeavors.

This year, we had a number of interesting geologic submissions to choose from; the four selected global 2018 Students in Mining & Energy Instrument Support Program winners and their research topics are as follows:
