These workshops are geared towards non-experts, particularly project geologists and managers who need to understand and work with spectral mineralogy as part of an overarching geological program.
- A complete introduction to hyperspectral mineralogy.
- Explanation of the most common pitfalls around interpretation of hyperspectral data.
- Demonstration of aiSIRISTM, a new tool that can be used in the normal project workflow to quickly and easily integrate spectral mineralogy to the project database.
- Discussion of techniques to assess hyperspectral mineralogy in combination with geochemistry and other exploration data using geostatistical and 3D modelling software.
Dr. Sasha Pontual has worked in spectral geology for 25 years, finishing her doctorate in 1990 and going on to work for the CSIRO (an Australian research organization) developing applications for portable spectrometers in exploration and mining.
Sarah Rice is a Senior Geochemist with ALS who works with industry clients to design custom-fit analytical solutions to geochemical problems and works on the development of cutting-edge analytical methods in exploration.
ASD-PANalytical representatives will be present at some workshops.
