(CEG)
CURTIN EXPERIMENTAL GEOCHEMISTRY FACILITY
CEG provides facility for experimental petrology, geochemistry and hydrogeochemistry at pressures and temperatures that range from those at the Earth’s surface to those at the base of the Earth’s crust.


WE HAVE THE CAPACITY TO UNDERTAKE EXPERIMENTS AT PRESSURE-CONDITIONS THAT SIMULATE CONDITIONS FROM THE SURFACE TO THE EARTH’S MANTLE.
