Short summary
Mineral resource exploration and mining is an essential part of today's high-tech industry. Modern remote-sensing exploration techniques from multiple platforms (e.g., satellite) to detect the spectral characteristics of the surface require spectral libraries as an essential reference. To enable remote mapping, the spectral libraries for rare-earth-bearing minerals, copper-bearing minerals and surface samples from a copper mine are presented here with their corresponding geochemical validation.
