This week GeoPool has been mapping more than 5000 meters of drill core with our ASD Terraspec® to determine alteration patterns in a mineralized system. Topaz – which is one of the alteration products at our project – has a diagnostic feature at 2080 nm. The feature occurs as a “dip” in the spectrum as certain molecular bonds of the mineral absorbs these specific wavelengths. Topaz is easily detected even at very low proportions.
GeoPool has a long experience in hyperspectral mapping and we are able to measure 1000-1700 meter of drill core each day depending on circumstances on site. Hyperspectral mapping is a cost effective and fast exploration tool.
