Hyperspectral instruments allow to capture mineralogical information from geological samples quickly and efficiently, providing great benefits to mine operators for both mining exploration and production projects. Currently, there are systems capable of performing a hyperspectral imaging along boreholes with the acquisition of high-resolution photographs, and they have been widely used in the different stages of mining projects.

Dr Sasha Pontual, a leading expert in spectral geology, is the MD and founder of AusSpec, a spectral geology solutions company founded in 1992.Â AusSpec has developed and sells the aiSIRIS cloud-based spectral interpretation solution to Minex companies. Sasha was one of the first independent consultants working in providing spectral analysis services to the Minex industry globally.Â Â In the last 25 years, she has played an important part in the industry take up of the technology. aiSIRIS is the realization of Sashaâ€™s desire to make spectral geology and mineralogy easily accessible to all geoscientists and embodies 25+ years of experience.
Mike graduated from Wits University with a BSc in 2012 and began working in field of hyperspectral imaging in 2013. He returned to Wits University in 2015 to complete his honours degree before returning to TerraCore as the Geological Manager for Africa. He has completed successful projects in Australia, Europe, and Africa; and is currently overseeing numerous on-going projects on those continents.
