For over 75 years, the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) has focused on research and technology demonstration that directly affects the welfare of the province — helping find solutions for the agricultural, mining, environmental and energy industries.
With Canada’s most significant helium reserves found in southwestern Saskatchewan, the province has the potential to be a leader in helium production. Learn about the findings from a report SRC developed to investigate the potential of building a helium liquification hub in the province.
SRC's testing regime assists industry clients with choosing the right sensor-based sorting technology for their needs. Learn about the different stages, from mineral characterization through to pilot-scale testing.
As supervisor of SRC’s Diamond Services group, Lucy's specialized knowledge and expertise has helped expand the laboratory’s capabilities into diamond breakage and assessments. From academia to industry, learn how Lucy applied her love of science to become an industry-leading diamond expert.
Rare earth elements are used in many technologies, but they require purification and processing to separate them for use in these products. Solvent extraction is a strategic separation step that makes REEs more valuable. Learn more about how SRC designed and fabricated its own solvent extraction cells in-house for its Rare Earth Processing Facility.
Mark is the Director of Indigenous Relations at SRC and a member of the Metis Nation-Saskatchewan. He is helping SRC make new connections, build trust and maintain relationships with Indigenous communities across the province. Read more about Mark and his work at SRC.
Mining practices have evolved with the advent of innovative technologies and new applications. SRC research scientist Dexu Kong, and collaborators from the University of Saskatchewan, researched a new way of recovering gold from secondary sources. Learn more about what they found.
Remediation efforts at the former Gunnar Mine and Mill Site reached a new milestone last spring—with the first stage of revegetation coming to fruition. Learn how this long-abandoned uranium mine and mill has undergone a large environmental transformation over the past decade.
SRC's Climate Services team installed a weather station at Black Fox Farm and Distillery, which provides Black Fox's owners accurate weather data for their business. Learn more about the weather station and SRC's nearly sixty-year history tracking Saskatchewan's changing climate.
While the latest technologies are the foundation of any security unit, successful operations also require a robust security culture. Safety and security are interconnected—a secure workplace ensures staff safety and keeps operations running smoothly. Learn how SRC is developing a culture of security as it grows.
