Paper Abstract

The mining industry is plagued with socioeconomic and safety roadblocks with not many solutions in the midst of a demanding market. As more and more geologic research using hyperspectral technology has been performed, along with an affordable price point for commercial use of hyperspectral technology, the benefits of hyperspectral imaging to the mining industry has become apparent. This study identifies the key areas of use for hyperspectral imaging in the mining industry through a case study of gypsum mine samples obtained from a mine in central Tuscany.
