ASD - TerraSpec 4 Standard-Res Mineral Analyzer

The TerraSpec line of mineral analyzers provide portable, rapid and non-destructive analysis of minerals in the lab or the field. Mineral geologists appreciate the TerraSpec mineral analyzer’s portability and ability to rapidly identify key minerals. When used as an ore analyzer, results are presented in seconds to speed ore processing decisions.

Increase efficiency and optimize metal yield with high-throughput mineralogical analysis, and enjoy even greater data quality with the TerraSpec 4 Standard-Res mining analyzer. Top mine operations around the world already trust ASD’s TerraSpec® line of mining instruments for their critical mineral analysis measurements.


Designed to enhance the productivity of mine site ore analysis, the tough and portable TerraSpec 4 Standard-Res mineral analyzer, with 10 nm resolution, provides high-throughput mineralogical analysis to help you optimize ore processing, sorting and ore recovery.


This flexible, near-infrared spectrometer accurately measures a wide variety of geologic samples offering better visibility into the ore sorting, processing and extraction processes. The rugged TerraSpec mineral and ore analyzer transitions easily from the production lab to the field, where it can quickly and accurately analyze ore feeds and tailings.
