Uranium exploration  worldwide is once again growing.
Exploration geologists are looking for unconformity related
uranium deposits, the most common deposit type and well-
known from Canada's Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, the
world's largest uranium resource. Other types of deposits
  • Hematite breccia
  • sandstone
  • Quartz-pebble
  • Surficial
  • Vein
  • Volcanic and caldera-related
  • Intrusive
  • Metasomite
  • Collapse breccia pipe
  • Phosphorite
  • Metmorphic
  • Lignite
  • Black shale

oreXpress field geological spectrometer and EZ-ID mineral
identification software, are well-suited for exploration geologists
looking for all types of uranium deposits. Our rugged, field
portable spectrometers can help geologists identify distinct
geochemical signatures, alteration halos, associated with
uranium mineralization. The following minerals are a few that can
be identified and associated with alteration halos:
  • Uraninite
  • Sericite
  • Chlorite
  • Kaolinite
  • Illite
  • Dickite
  • Pyrite
  • Chalcopyrite

Every oreXpress 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
from Spectral International and the GeoSPEC high resolution

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 or
    oreXpress platinum 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 uranium:
  • 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-
