CORE Group is a contract metallurgical testing and research organisation.

Core’s metallurgical laboratory was founded in 1981 as MIM’s Hydrometallurgy Research Laboratories and in 2016 celebrated 35 years of servicing the resources industry. We are now rigorously independent and privately owned. As a well-established mineral processing laboratory, Core offers a comprehensive range of mineral processing capabilities, along with expert advice from our experienced team of metallurgists and engineers.

In addition to mineral processing capabilities, we have an extensively equipped in-house assay laboratory offering analytical services to the mineral and environmental sectors.

The laboratory facilities are conveniently located in the Brisbane suburb of Albion, close to the Brisbane International Airport.
