The laboratory at KREC consists of 600 m2, of which about 1/3 is currently used for analytical equipment and experiments. Besides regular water quality monitoring equipment (ph, Eh, temp probes, oxygen probe, and analyzer, etc.), the analytical equipment consists of:
The main part of the laboratory area is used for running experiments both as student research projects and on projects for mining companies.
Most of the research projects are evaluating different types of mineral reaction rates and leaching systems.
These experiments for enhancing metal recovery, developin
g new methods of metal extraction, or evaluating environmental issues due to metal leaching and A/NRD processes.
KREC is also seeking cooperation with Universities and research institutes to use the facility as a field station
especially for larger experiments.
