TerraSpec Halo Mineral Identifier

The best NIR mineral identification instrument available for the exploration geology market

For exploration and mine geologists, the ASD TerraSpec® Halo mineral identifier is the next generation all-in-one mineral analysis system that allows you to immediately identify alteration minerals with a simple pull of a trigger for faster delineation of alteration, speedier core logging and quick confirmation of ore mineralogy.

The TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier is a full-range NIR spectrometer measuring the visible and short wave infrared regions (350-2500 nm) that produces immediate on-instrument results using a non-destructive contact measurement. The instrument includes internal references to allow for easy operation and data management and also features proprietary, state-of-the-art mineral identification software for fast data capture in the field, and easy data management back in the lab or core shack. 

Additional features of the TerraSpec Halo

  • Easy to use handheld
  • Fast and accurate
  • Multiple languages
  • No cables
  • On board GPS
  • Audio recorder
  • Multi-mineral results and scalars
  • No third party hardware

This revolutionary instrument delivers rapid mineral identification that significantly speeds exploration efforts, increases efficiency, improves analysis and decision making, and ultimately saves exploration programs valuable time and money.
