The ProspecTIR CORE Scanner captures 100% of the target material’s spectral properties in 357 continuously spaced channels (4-5nm spectral resolution) over the 400 – 2500nm spectral range. Spatial resolution, or nominal pixel size, is less than 1.75 mm. A closed system enables automatic calibration to reflectance through total control of the imaging environment. The self-contained system provides high quality reproducible hyperspectral data from one drilling campaign to the next. This non destructive mode of core analysis gives an unbiased mineral characterization which can optimize any exploration or drilling program.
