The Core Imaging Workstation

sisuROCK provides an efficient and high throughput production tool for the mining industry and a versatile and flexible analysis tool for geological research applications. sisuROCK applies Specim’s state of the art hyperspectral cameras for rapid collection of hyperspectral data from various geological samples.


How sisuROCK Works

sisuROCK implements high speed pushbroom hyperspectral imaging and is a fully equipped turnkey solution. It consists of sample illumination units and hyperspectral cameras which collect spectral and spatial information form the cores as the core box is automatically moved through the system. Power supplies and the data logging computer are neatly stored in cabinets below the sample table. All this is built in a rugged instrument which is developed to offer easy, rapid, and flexible operation.

sisuROCK is capable of handling samples up to 1.5 m in length, 0.65m in width and 50kg in weight. Once the samples are loaded onto the tray, the data acquisition is initialised from the Windows based data acquisition computer. Each scan automatically starts with built-in calibration measurements, which include a dark reference and reference image from a known reflectance target. With this calibration data, the raw spectral data collected from the samples can be turned into system independent reflectance or absorbance data which includes the mineral specific spectral signatures. The operator can complement each image data file with additional metadata like operator id, core depth, core box number and additional description for instance on the mine or measurement campaign. Based on mineral specific data, prediction models to qualify and quantify the measured drill cores and other geological samples can be created.

Performance And Productivity

sisuROCK is capable of providing the data collection rate required in large exploration and industrial projects. Imaging takes place with high spatial resolution for optimal sample structural detail, and with high spectral resolution providing discrimination of mineral spectral signatures.




High spatial and spectral resolution with two options: SWEI and spectral imaging with high resolution RBG and SWIR + VNIR spectral imaging
