oreXpress spectrometers are ideal for core logging

The oreXpress, oreXplorer or oreXpert with EZ-ID mineral identification software provide accurate and repeatable core logging measurements that allow miners and geologists to create a more precise and complete picture of mining potential. If you are frustrated with manual core logging – slow and inaccurate – and unable or unwilling to justify the acquisition of a full automated core logging system, then you should take a look at the oreXpress, oreXplorer or oreXpert geological spectrometers.

Why are oreXpress, oreXplorer and oreXpert mineral analyzers so well-suited for core logging?

  • Speed – a user can take scans at every 25 cm, could easily scan 400 meters a day of core.
  • Affordability – the oreXpress, oreXplorer or oreXpert can easily pay for itself before the end of your first project
  • Take a systematic approach – no more illegible notes, indecipherable comments and abbreviations, or incomplete results – use the oreXpress, oreXplorer or oreXpert to standardize your core logging procedures
  • Create a digital core database – scans are saved as ASCII files for use by other modeling or planning programs
  • Use the oreXpress, oreXplorer or oreXpert in QC for an automated core logger, if you have one
  • Protect, organize and maximize your investment in mining and exploration and drilling investment

Start getting a complete picture of mine potential with better core logging.

oreXpress, oreXplorer and oreXpert are available with EZ-ID mineral identification software and the Custom Library Builder Module. EZ-ID allows you to compare your target sample with a known library of mineral spectra. EZ-ID comes with the USGS spectral library and is available with the GeoSPEC library with samples from the Colorado School of Mines collection and SpecMIN library.

EZ-ID features:

  • Fast and accurate identification of an unknown mineral to a known spectral library sample
  • Ease-of-use: take your scan using one of our field spectrometers and see results in real-time
  • Simple, consistent user interface
  • USGS, SpecMIN and GeoSPEC libraries available
  • Weighted score for best matches
  • Include or exclude spectral regions of interest for optimal results
  • Batch Mode allows you to format and save EZ-ID results, scans and metadata in a spreadsheet, text, or comma delimited file format for use in reports and with other software

In Batch Mode, you can save all your results and scans from EZ-ID in a spreadsheet format.

Core logging with a Spectral Evolution field spectrometer for mining

EZ-ID mineral identification software can be used to identify minerals and see mineral alteration in core. All scans and associated data can be saved as ASCII files and then saved for use with 3D mineral mapping tools and help create a virtual core log library.
