Labs and Facilities

Since our inception in 1947, we have established and expanded a wide range of laboratories and facilities to meet the changing needs of industry. We are conveniently located in the production heart of many resource industries, including uranium, potash, diamonds and burgeoning sectors like rare earths and hydrogen.

From commercial laboratories to contract research and development and pilot plants, SRC has reliable, secure, independent and state-of-the-art facilities staffed by world-class scientists, engineers, researchers and technologists. 

Collaboration is key at SRC. Our multi-disciplinary teams work across our labs and facilities, giving clients a central point of access to many of our services. We keep it convenient so you can dedicate fewer resources getting the solutions you need.
