The NIR Community from ASD Inc., a PANalytical company
The TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier can be used to rapidly identify alteration minerals with a single pull of a trigger. In addition to mineral identities, the TerraSpec Halo also monitors and reports on subtle spectral shifts due to geochemistry changes (called scalars) that can be used as supplementary exploration vectors to mineral deposits.
We're continuing to add content to the newest section of our website - Minerals Analysis. Here we've included content that highlights minerals that have spectrally active features in the near infrared (NIR), making them ideally suited for the rapid, portable and precise mineral analysis of the TerraSpec 4 mineral analyzer.
We've added a new segment to the mining applications section of our website called Minerals Analysis. In this section we will add content that highlights minerals that have spectrally active features in the near infrared (NIR), making them ideally suited for the rapid, precise minerals analysis of the TerraSpec 4 mineral analzyer.
Considering mineral analysis in your exploration or mining program? ASD partners, Portable Analytical Solutions (PAS) and SOLTEX will be hosting mineral analysis training events that highlight ASD instruments, The Spectral Geologist (TSG®) software and chemometric modeling in Chile and Australia in late November and early December.
ASD SummitCAL Solutions Team’s Dan Shiley released his final installment in a four-part series on the use of near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy in the mining industry. His article, "If you aren’t controlling your process, your process is controlling you" was published earlier this week on SpectroscopyNOW.
ASD will display our leading mineral analyzers at MINExpo, Sept. 24-26 in Las Vegas, at booth 22206 in the South Hall. We will demonstrate how our analyzers are well suited for exploration and mining production applications.
Our durable TerraSpec® 4 mineral analyzers for mining exploration and production have been trusted by mining professionals for years. These analyzers have proven top-rated accuracy, and boast a convenient, portable design.
Visit our booth to learn:
• How TerraSpec 4 analyzers pair with the powerful TSG Pro™ software for rapid and precise mineralogical analysis
• How real-time quantitative information derived by our instrumentation solutions help optimize mining production through immediate decisions that improve productivity, reduce costs and increase yields
• How the QualitySpec® 7000 over-the-belt analyzer provides instant, non-destructive multiple constituent analysis of swelling clays or problem mineral percentages.
