Australian scientific research agency CSIRO has licensed HyLogger, its mineral analysis technology, to METS group Corescan. Using hyper-spectral imaging, it has the potential to make logging drill cores faster and more accurate – and Australia’s mining sector more competitive, as Mining Technology reports.

Drilling in search of mineral resources is often a laborious process, and one that often requires bands of geologists, engineers and metallurgists on the ground. Driven by a robotic sampling system, HyLogger uses automated hyper-spectral analysis that makes logging drill cores faster and more accurate.

Hazelton samples. Hazelton -formally Price Creek-, Jaxons flagship project, spans 44,482 ha and is prospective for Eskay Creek and Equity Silver style mineralization. Widespread soil anomalies and surface showings up to 3,397 g-t Ag, 12.7 g-t Au, and 22.29% Zn have been found on this advanced exploration project and a number of features suggest that the property has considerable potential.
