The Australian company Corescan has brought their trailer-mounted hyperspectral core scanning system to Tucson this week to demonstrate the technology to the local mining industry before the facility moves to its new base in Hermosillo, Mexico. Cores generally are brought to the facility but for larger or urgent jobs, the trailer can be set up on the exploration site.
The trailer is being hosted in Bronco Creek Exploration's parking lot [top right] and test runs are being done for a variety of core samples including some from the AZGS repository.

Corescan is evaluating the market for opening a US office with Tucson likely on the short list.
[note: an earlier version of this post mistakenly stated the trailer was at the offices of Bear Creek]
