AbstractThis paper investigates the potential of hyperspectral remote sensing for the identification of uranium mine tailings. The objective is to distinguish uranium mining operations from other types of mining to help in the development of nuclear safeguards. Probe-1 airborne hyperspectral data were acquired over the Pronto mine tailings near Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada. Analysis of the data includes radiometric and atmospheric corrections, endmember extraction and identification, constrained linear spectral unmixing, and the production of an abundance map of each endmember. Reflectance spectra of laboratory standards of uranium compounds were measured to help in the identification of the endmember spectra. This paper presents the abundance maps of some of the endmembers and the spectra of the laboratory standards.
