We are lucky to have this kind of device!
Application Area: Defining alteration zones in gold deposit
"TerraSpec profiles are shown at the same respective reflectance intensity. In general, TerraSpec spectra have more defined absorption features due to the sensitivity of the detector. It's easy to use for every person in our team. Hand held option is good to take to any location to characterize rock units. More productive than the other version of ASD devices."
Manufacturer's ResponseThank you for sharing this positive review. Nice to see that the product is easy to use.

Great results, easy to use.
Application Area:Identify alteration minerals for faster delineation of alteration, core logging and quick confirmati
"With a simple push of a button, it delivers mineralogy results in a matter of seconds, a rapid method to identify minerals and decrease associated exploration costs."
Manufacturer's ResponseThank you for your good review of our full-range NIR all-in-one handheld ASD mineral analysis spectrometer. The extensive onboard spectral library feature allows for fast multi-mineral results and spectral ‘scalars’ offer additional information about deposit geochemical conditions. We are happy to hear that your use of the instrument is helping you to decrease costs!

Excellent for mineral exploration.
Application Area:Mineral exploration
"The Halo NIR spectrometer is an excellent instrument for mineral exploration. Very portable and friendly in the field. The main negative is that the interface with PCs is not good at all!"
Manufacturer's ResponseThank you for the overall positive review of the instrument. Malvern Panalytical is committed to restless innovation and continuously improving the user experience with our products. The PC interface does function when it is used as intended. As with all software programs, make sure all updates are for the PC itself are installed before installing the Halo Manager software. Additionally, always make sure you have enough disk space for the install. Malvern Panalytical always recommends creating and configuring projects and locations before going into the field to collect data. The instrument should be synced after every usage. Leaving large volumes of data, with several locations presents a difficult load for the syncing process.
For exploration and mine geologists, the ASD TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier is the next generation all-in-one mineral identifier / 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 ASD TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier is a full-range VNIR 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 ASD TerraSpec Halo
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.
