In pilot plant hall there are crushing-, magnetic- and gravity separation environments and all laboratory equipment for flotation research. In the OMS R&D Centre there are process-water and cleaning research environments. In mining engineering laboratory, there is a Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar for blasting research.
