BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 10, 2013 — PANalytical Boulder (formerly Analytical Spectral Devices) has introduced the ASD TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier, a handheld near-IR spectrometer that delivers mineralogy results in <20 s.
Weighing only 2.0 kg, the instrument includes a proprietary mineral prediction software program that pulls data from a multicontinent mineral library sourced from public and private databases.
Features include onboard GPS, voice recording capability, multiple languages for onboard software and an extensive spectral library. The device can be used in the core shack or on the rig for core and drill chip analysis, and in production environments for field confirmation, ore-grade control or other purposes.
