SisuROCK is a fully automated hyperspectral core imaging instrument for easy and high speed scanning of drill cores and other geological samples.

SisuROCK is capable of imaging a single drill core in a high resolution mode or a whole core box in a high speed scanning mode. Hyperspectral imaging data of a whole core box is acquired in less than 15 seconds, highly improving productivity in drill core analysis.

SisuROCK provides an efficient and high throughput production tool for the mining industry and a versatile and flexible analysis tool for geological research applications. SisuROCK applies Specim’s state-of-the-art hyperspectral cameras for rapid collection of hyperspectral data from various geological samples.

An average data collection rate of 1 200 metres of core per day was achieved in an exploration project, where SisuROCK was operated in the full core tray mode with spatial resolution of 2 mm. Hyperspectral data from a total of 17 000 metres of core was collected in two weeks.
