Spectral Evolution oreX Field Portable Spectrometers for Mining


Spectral Evolution


Portable field NIR spectrometers for mineral identification and analysis in mineral exploration that, together with EZ-ID mineral identification software, allow geologists to measure and identify minerals in seconds and cover more ground than traditional methods .
 Can identify different mineral phases, create mineral alteration maps, and more accurately identify mineral prospectors for vectoring to mineral deposits.

The 3 models available are:
oreXpress, oreXplorer, and oreXpert

Add to wishlist

Rapid data/spectra collection in the field - allowing you to take more scans in less time
High resolution in a field instrument
High signal-to-noise ratio for improved reflectance values
Fast start-up and use with no optimization step required between scans
Sturdy construction for harsh field environments
Reliable operation with no moving optics and a robust fiber optic cable with quick-disconnect
Rugged and reliable mineral contact probes for single click field measurements to measure outcrops, cores and chip trays.

Using our portable UV/VIS/NIR reflectance geological spectrometers, you can identify:

Al(OH) group minerals
Si(OH) group minerals
Fe(OH) group minerals
Mg(OH) group minerals
Carbonate group minerals
Selected OH-bearing silicates
Selected zeolites
Selected rare earth element (REE)-bearing minerals
Selected massive sulphides

oreXpress, oreXplorer and oreXpert NIR spectrometers provide a number of unique, in-field benefits, including:

Full UV/VIS/NIR spectral range of 350-2500nm
Fast scanning and ease-of-use - one touch operation, auto- optimization on every scan
Portable, lightweight unit with optional rugged handheld tablet - easy for one person to use
Your tablet becomes your field notebook - record audio notes, add your GPS position, take pictures of your samples, save it all and tag it to your scan
Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries- lightweight, four hour operating life
Immediate start-up - no warm up - start taking readings immediately to take advantage of daylight and weather
DARWin SP data acquisition software collects your critical data, saves in ASCII files - no post-processing necessary - use with SpecMIN, GRAMS, TSG, Unscrambler from Camo Analytics and other 3rd party software

Our oreXpress NIR spectrometers are available with EZ-ID software that provides:
  Fast and accurate identification of an unknown mineral to a known library sample
  Easy-to-use, just collect your scan and see the results in real time
  Simple, consistent user-interface
  Pattern matching algorithms in interactive mode that can be used with SpecMIN, USGS, GeoSPEC and other libraries for mineral identification
  Software provides a weighted score for best matches
  Include or exclude spectral regions of interest for optimal results and display results and scores in multiple columns in different combinations for comparison and unmixing
  Save match regions as pre-sets to facilitate looking for similar minerals
  Scalars that provide additional information on alteration
  The ability to create your own library of known samples and the option to import and convert ASD files for use with EZ-ID.
