SGS develops and demonstrates bankable flowsheets and processes for environmentally sustainable uranium extraction processing.

These flowsheets are confirmed on-site through bench and pilot plant testing programmes that are internationally recognised by the mining, engineering and financial communities. SGS has decades of expertise with uranium metallurgy and the specialised, rigorous health and safety protocols required when handling this commodity.

With SGS, your uranium metallurgical testing programme will:

  • Result in a practical, cost effective, environmentally sound flowsheet
  • Provide data for capital and operating cost estimates
  • Generate higher value through improved recovery or cost savings
  • Provide bankable milestones to maximise financing options

SGS’s experienced metallurgical professionals and technicians provide bankable results for your uranium project. Our core philosophy is to understand the variability of the ore parameters that affect metallurgical performance and then design, optimise or forecast based on these parameters.
