Laboratories

Katherine is home to laboratories accredited through the National Association of Testing Authority Australia.

Local businesses have laboratories based in Katherine and Pine Creek, as well as Darwin and Alice Springs. Site, remote and community laboratory services are also available, meaning we can provide support right where it is needed.

One laboratory is capable in providing assaying procedures for base metals, rare earth, multi-element and uranium as well as grade control, resource definitions and mill process sampling. Using both ICp-MS and icd-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry), as well as fire assay technology this laboratory can provide high value expert analytical and testing services within remarkable timeframes.

Another laboratory offers construction materials testing, soil testing, aggregate testing, concrete testing, environmental sampling and asphalt or bitumen testing. They can also provide road asset solutions through accurate and quality road data with informative reports that include pavement structure, pavement profiling and traffic data.

Our testing businesses have more than 60 years’ combined experience and the local knowledge to understand the geology of the Katherine region. Using the professional services provided locally will help you get the fastest turnaround on test results.
