****Waiting list still available, please click register!

A chance for the member of the IOP to go to the underground lab at Boulby potash mine:

"Boulby Underground Laboratory is the UK’s deep underground science facility located 1.1km below ground in Boulby mine, a working potash, polyhalite and salt mine in the North East of England. Boulby is a special place for science, enabling a wide range of studies requiring access to the geologically interesting and ultra-low background deep underground environment."

This is a great opportunity to visit a world class laboratory preforming cutting edge research into dark matter, Muon Tomography, Astrobiology and more a kilometre below ground!

We will offer transport from Darlington Train station leaving at 10:45am or you can make your own way there.

As this is a working mine we require that visitors have a reasonable level of fitness in order to visit the underground laboratory (i.e. visitors should expect a medium intensity of activity for the duration of their visit including 15 minute walks to and from the lab). Also you must be over 18 and not pregnant. Finally the mine is slightly over pressured (equivalent to being 1m under water) and can cause issues for those with ear problems so please do encourage any visitors with questions to Contact us directly. You will be required to fill in a seperate form directly from Boulby Mine for health and safety, we will send this form to you in due course.

You must be a IOP member to attend this visit.
