In 2019, Corescan partnered with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) to study 16,000 feet of archived mineral cores from MDNR's Drill Core Library in Hibbing. Corescan provided high resolution hyperspectral imaging of the core using its HCI-3 instrument (VNIR-SWIR). Thirty-two drill holes located within five focus areas in Northern and Central Minnesota were scanned and the hyperspectral data processed and interpreted by Corescan geologists. The results of this work and the use of the Coreshed web platform are proudly provided here free of charge by the MDNR and Corescan.
