Short summary
Integration of drill core and Earth observation data is critical for cost-effective mineral exploration and mining. Publicly accessible data sets to evaluate analytical tools and their effectiveness for characterisation of mineral assemblages and lithologies or discrimination of ore from waste are however scarce. The open-access Rocklea Dome 3D Mineral Mapping Test Data Set allows an evaluation of subsurface and surface information for exploration of mineral resources and their characterisation.
