Hyperspectral surveying for mineral resources in Alaska

Alaska is a major producer of base and precious metals and has a high potential for additional undiscovered mineral resources. However, discovery is hindered by Alaska&rsquo;s vast size, remoteness, and rugged terrain. New methods are needed to overcome t
