The oreXpress spectrometer and EZ-ID mineral identification
software, are well-suited for exploration geologists looking for
nickel in sulfide and lateritic ore deposits. These instruments
can help geologists to identify pathfinder minerals for
economically viable deposits. For nickel sulfide deposits, these
minerals can include the following in mafic and ultramafic
igneous rocks:
  • pentlandite
  • pyrrophotite
  • chalcopyrite
  • pyrite

For laterites, pathfinder minerals could include:
  • nickeliferous limonite
  • goethite
  • smectite
  • nontronite
  • garnierite

Every oreXpress geological spectrometer includes our DARWin
SP Data Acquisition software and is available with
EZ-ID and the
Custom Library Builder Module. EZ-ID allows you to compare your
target sample with a known library of mineral spectra. EZ-ID
comes with the USGS spectral library and is available with the
SpecMIN library and the GeoSPEC high resolution library.

EZ-ID features:
  • Fast and accurate identification of an unknown mineral to a
    known spectral library sample
  • Ease-of-use: take your scan using an oreXpress and see
    results in real-time
  • Simple, consistent user interface
  • USGS and SpecMIN libraries available
  • Weighted score for best matches
  • Include or exclude spectral regions of interest for optimal

Using an oreXpress with EZ-ID delivers the following benefits for
exploration geologists exploring for copper:
  • Quickly take a lot of samples
  • Cover more ground in less time
  • More accurate data provides a more complete picture of
    what you are looking at
  • Less time and expense than waiting for samples to come
    back from the lab
  • Less drilling - better results quickly delivers a return-on-
  • Better identification of samples in the core shack for assays
