How NIR Mineralogy Aids in Comminution and Recovery Models

December 03, 2014

Stacey Leichliter is a geometallurgist and has used near infrared instrumentation to characterize ore mineralogy at mine sites like AngloGold's Cripple Creek facility in Colorado, USA. In July, Stacey provided us with her thoughts on how the TerraSpec Halo applies to mine geologists.

Join us in Keystone, Colorado beginning on Saturday, September 27 for Society of Economic Geologists (SEG) 2014. The theme of this year's conference is "Building Exploration Capability for the 21st Century."

The TerraSpec Halo visits Utah, Toronto and Chile

February 21, 2014

The TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier continues its world tour with upcoming stops in Utah, Toronto and Chile. Don't miss your chance to demo the lightest and fastest NIR mineral identification instrument available for the exploration geology market.

How does the TerraSpec Halo benefit an exploration program?

February 11, 2014

In December, we introduced the TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier - an all-in-one mineral analysis system with the ability to detect and map in real time the alteration patterns that serve as useful exploration vectors. What exactly does this mean for your exploration programs and how can the Halo help speed your exploration efforts?

Mineral Exploration Roundup 2014 update - live from Vancouver

January 29, 2014

A number of posters at this week's Mineral Exploration Roundup conference in Vancouver, BC featured PANalytical Boulder's ASD spectrometers including Kevin Meazell's poster titled "Porphyry Copper Exploration in the Hualapai Mountains, Northwest Arizona." Among other things, Meazell et. al. monitored white mica crystallinity using the ASD TerraSpec 4 mineral analyzer to gauge the temperature changes within the hydrothermal system so he could vector to the deposit faster.

Minerals Analysis and Bauxite Exploration - New Website Content and Free Paper!

August 01, 2013

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.
