Workshop on infrared drill core imaging

The Geological Survey of Sweden arranges a workshop on infrared drill core imaging in Malå, on November 26–27, 2014.

The Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) has recently started a project at the national drill core archive in Malå to scan 200 000 meters of drill core from Norrbotten and Västerbotten. The drill cores to be scanned are owned by SGU and will be scanned using infrared drill core imaging. The results from the project will be released as open data. The workshop provides an opportunity to understand how infrared drill core imaging can add value to geological, exploration and mining projects. An overview of the SGU project, technology, methodology, instrumentation and data products will be provided. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit the drill core archive in Malå where the instrumentation and data acquisition are in progress.

Demonstration data sets will be used to illustrate the mineralogical information that can be obtained from the data.

Time will also be spent detailing the product types and uses generated from the infrared image data. These will allow the attendee to explore the data and understand how these data provide knowledge to the geological material. Application examples will be demonstrated from the data for different case studies and applications.

Cost : SEK 1000:- Includes two lunches, coffee and workshop notes.
Participants must book their own logistics and hotel-room.
The workshop will be held in English. Max. number of participants: 20.

Register no later than Nov. 7th to Cancellations received after 20 November will be charged the registration cost.
