aiSIRIS is a cloud-based spectral interpretation solution that is in use in over 100 MinEx sites. Most of these sites are already using TerraSpec spectrometers but were having difficulty cost-effectively and confidently modelling their alteration systems. 

aiSIRIS provides standardized outputs of complete mineralogy and analytics that can be trusted for detailed alteration and geomet modelling. This means that the results can go directly into company databases and be easily integrated with other project data for building alteration models. 

The presentation will discuss the Kisladag mine case study and other examples from various exploration and mining projects of how the quantitative nature of the aiSIRIS outputs can advance geological and geometallurgical models.

Dr Sasha Pontual, a leading expert in spectral geology, is the MD and founder of AusSpec, a spectral geology solutions company founded in 1992. AusSpec has developed and sells the aiSIRIS cloud-based spectral interpretation solution to MinEx companies that want to use hand-held spectrometer data as an input into alteration modelling. aiSIRIS is the realization of Sasha’s desire to make spectral geology accessible to all geoscientists and embodies 25+ years of experience providing field-based mineral analysis services to the industry. Sasha was one of the first independent consultants working in providing spectral analysis services to the MinEx industry globally. In the last 25 years, she has created and delivered numerous training workshops to the industry, to most of the major companies, and has played an important part in the industry take up of the technology.
