ASD has expanded its presence in the Southern Africa mining industry with the addition of reseller United Spectrometer Technologies.
The NIR Community from ASD Inc., a PANalytical company
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.
For more information on MINExpo, or to set up a time to talk with an ASD representative during the conference, please feel free to contact us and arrange a meeting.
When it comes to mining in today’s economy, it is critical to use resources to their maximum potential. Reflectance spectroscopy has been widely used to help discover new deposits as well as establish ore mineralogical properties during the mine development process.
In his oral presentation, “Rapid Mineralogical Analysis in Support of Mineral Exploration and Mine Development,” Dr. Curtiss will discuss how during any exploration process reflectance spectroscopy can work in concert with a mining instrument like the TerraSpec mineral analyzer to characterize the alteration mineral halos associated with potential new deposits. Useful for mapping, planning and amassing detailed knowledge of ore properties, a mining analyzer can help to accelerate and reduce risks in exploration and mine development.
Deposits often have distinct mineral signatures and the diagnostic process of the TerraSpec mining analyzer helps to identify and characterize the association of these alteration mineral signatures with a specific deposit.
During mine planning, quantitative mineralogical and metallurgical analysis using reflectance spectroscopy is often used to supplement analysis performed by XRD and/or QEMSCAN. The ASD team has worked to develop special and specific calibrations for a variety of minerals that may cause problems in the processing of copper ore. The results are directly applicable for flowsheet development and to determine the economic viability, if any, of a mine site.
Mining-technology.com recently named ASD’s TerraSpec 4 line of mineral analyzers as one of the mining industry's most innovative technologies for finding deposits and judging their viability. Built for field or laboratory operation, the TerraSpec 4 line of portable and rugged mineral analyzers provide the precision analysis required by today’s mineral exploration and mining operations worldwide.
ASD is proud to announce our partnership with spectral software solutions company, AusSpec International, to co-market the The Spectral Geologist (TSG) Pro software. The mineral exploration technology of the TerraSpec mineral analyzer coupled with the TSG Pro software proven successful in several applications including mineral analysis for geological sites.
The TerraSpec 4 Hi-Res analyzer provides the highest quality mineralogical data available in a mineral analyzer. The TSG Pro software interprets and manipulates the data from the TerraSpec 4 Hi-Res instrument for the best information possible for mining mineral exploration. Over the past several years approximately 80 percent of TSG Pro spectral software licenses have been sold to TerraSpec mineral analyzer users.
The TSG Pro software offers users accurate and rapid mineral exploration technology to classify critical minerals using high quality spectra data processed by the TerraSpec 4 mineral analyzer. TSG also offers a variety of data visualization options and tools for natural mineral interpretation.
