Students in Mining TerraSpec Instrument Program – Call for Proposals

The Students in Mining TerraSpec Instrument Program was developed to enhance innovation in the mining and energy industries by providing temporary use of a TerraSpec 4 mineral analyser to eligible students, together with access to the Spectral Geologist (TSG) Pro-mineral analysis software which easily sorts and analyses the high quality spectra data collected by the TerraSpec 4 instrument.


Graduate students pursuing a Master’s or Ph.D. within an accredited college or university in Australia or in all other countries where carnet documentation for shipments is accepted are eligible to apply. Please note – no more than one submission per researcher will be considered.


This program encourages novel, unconventional and/or fundamental research. Proposals should be inventive, might be opportunistic and need not have immediate practical application or guarantee of success.


The proposal deadline is the 15th of November 2014 with winners announced late December 2014.
