Identify Your Target Mineral in Real Time with EZ-ID(TM) and the SpecMIN(TM) Library on the oreXpress(TM) Field Spectrometer

The SpecMIN Library offers the most comprehensive selection of mineral spectra available – see it with EZ-ID at GRSG, Booth #3, Berlin, December 9-11.

Lawrence, MA – EZ-ID software running on an oreXpress portable spectrometer is an ideal solution for fast, easy, and accurate mineral identification in the field. EZ-ID matches your unknown mineral against a known spectral library. Now, EZ-ID is available with the SpecMIN library from Spectral International.

SpecMIN includes an extensive and dynamic library of over 494 infrared active mineral species with more than 1,528 individual spectra. This unique spectral library includes a minimum of two different samples per mineral.

With the availability of the SpecMIN library, EZ-ID software can be used for real time mineral identification with outcrops, in pits, with hand samples, and is especially useful in  fast and accurate core logging applications. EZ-ID features:

• Fast and accurate identification of an unknown mineral to a known library sample

• Easy to use – just collect a target scan using the oreXpress spectrometer and see immediate match results in real time

• Simple, consistent user interface

• Include or exclude spectral regions of interest for optimal results

• Fast scanning for optimum field work or core shack logging

With our Custom Library Builder software module, EZ-ID allows you to scan known samples and quickly build a custom library for a particular project, mineral, location, and more. You can select pre-defined metadata fields or define your own.

The combination of EZ-ID software and the oreXpress field portable spectrometer for mining offer geologists a complete mineral identification system to improve mining exploration.

The oreXpress spectrometer with companion GETAC PS336 handheld microcomputer features:

• 350-2500nm spectral range

• Auto dark shutter and autoexposure for easy, one-touch scanning

• No optimization required to start scanning – get to work as soon as you hit the field

• With the GETAC PS336, easily tag spectra with images from the auto-focus digital camera, e-compass, altimeter, GPS data, and voice notes

• GETAC sunlight readable VGA display

• Mineral contact probe with metal-clad fiber optic cable

• Lightweight LI-ion batteries for power in the field

• Accessories include core shack fold-up field cart and benchtop reflectance probe
