Located 2km underground in Vale’s Creighton mine, the rock overhead filters out cosmic rays that create background radiation on the Earth’s surface. In this unique, ultra-low radiation environment, scientists and technicians from around the world work together on large scale experiments. SNOLAB hosts nearly a dozen experiments, many that are focused on astroparticle physics specifically looking for neutrinos and dark matter particles. The facility also supports biology, geology and other types of science.
