Specim Win MEUR Transformational Deal for One of the World's Largest Optical and Mineralogical Core Scanning Projects

SPECIM wins 1.7 MEUR transformational deal with the Geological Survey of Sweden

Scans and analyses 200 km hyperspectral imaging data of drill core archives

The Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) has signed a contract with SPECIM for one of the world’s largest optical and mineralogical core scanning projects. Together with its South-African partner GeoSpectral Imaging (GSI), SPECIM will scan and analyze 200 km of hyperspectral imaging data of archived drill core.

The scanning will capture VNIR, SWIR and LWIR (*) wavelength spectral images as well as High Resolution RGB image, all in a single scan. The project will result in a uniform national drill core data base for further macro-analysis.

“We are looking forward to working with SPECIM. The project will extract additional information from our voluminous asset of drill cores. The information - freely available on internet - will be of great value for exploration, research and mapping” said Kaj Lax, Head of Mineral Resources department, Geological Survey of Sweden.

“The drill cores cover more than one hundred years of exploration. This project will transform Sweden’s mineralogical data into digitized, actionable insight.”

“The combination of SPECIM’s SisuROCK scanner and GeoSpectral Imaging’s processing solution provides the best-in-class solution needed to address the requirements of the client, the high speed and performance is what makes this project economically viable”, said Rainer Bärs, Project Manager, Hyperspectral Sensors and Software at SPECIM. “We look forward to working with the Geological Survey of Sweden as they enter a new era in their minerals information activities.”

“SPECIM has made a strategic decision to move in the supply chain from an equipment manufacturer to a service provider through internal structuring and by partnering. This contract is a confirmation of our strategy working in action,” said Risto Kalske, Chairman of the Board, SPECIM. “We appreciate Sweden taking the lead in digitizing their national archive, and trust other countries will adopt similar practices enabled by new services and solutions.”

SPECIM Spectral Imaging Ltd. is the world leading manufacturer of hyperspectral imaging instruments and systems. In addition to AISA airborne remote sensing systems, SPECIM provides ImSpector Imaging Spectrographs, Spectral Cameras and Hyperspectral Imaging Solutions to an increasing range of demanding industrial and science applications like color measurement, recycling, geological core logging, process analytical technology (PAT), life sciences, chemical imaging, and forensics.
