Economic significance of platinum group elements and water in asteroids: Insights from chondritic meteoritesDownload
Asteroids are considered to be rich sources of precious metals, water, and essential volatiles for life. Such a consideration has been derived from the study of meteorites and asteroid reflectance spectra which have both been vital to our understanding of asteroid compositions. The vast amount of...
This thesis investigates three ways that automated reflectance spectroscopy can be used for applied purposes: the automated logging of drill core into ore-bearing and barren zones, the analysis of minerals to provide evidence of hydrothermal alteration, and the creation of mineral maps to show...
