New real time EZ-ID mineral identification software launched for mining


SPECTRAL EVOLUTION presents the EZ-ID software designed for geologists to quickly identify target minerals in real time.

Geologists can combine the EZ-ID software and the oreXpress field portable spectrometer for mining to get a complete mineral identification system to improve mining exploration. 

The EZ-ID software running on an oreXpress portable spectrometer is an ideal solution for fast, easy and accurate mineral identification in the field with the target scans collected using the spectrometer compared against the USGS spectral library, commercially available libraries or a custom library built with the software’s Custom Library Builder module to determine the best match in real time.

The Custom Library Builder software module allows the user to scan known samples and quickly build a custom library for a particular project, mineral or location among others. 

EZ-ID mineral identification software can be used on unknown samples found on outcrops, and in pits and hand samples, and is especially useful in fast and accurate core logging applications. 

Key features and benefits of the EZ-ID software include fast and accurate identification of unknown minerals to known library samples; ease of use with simple, consistent user interface; and a USGS library. The software also allows the user to include or exclude spectral regions of interest for optimal results; and enables fast scanning for optimum field work or core shack logging.

Key features of the oreXpress spectrometer with companion GETAC PS336 handheld microcomputer include: 350-2500nm spectral range; auto dark shutter and autoexposure for easy, one-touch scanning; optimisation not required to start scanning; microcomputer allows easy tagging of 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 fibre optic cable; lightweight Li-Ion batteries for power in the field; and accessories such as core shack fold-up field cart and benchtop reflectance probe.
