Join the Solution Mining Research Institute!

SMRI has grown and is successful because of strong member support, which allows us to offer research and educational programs of value to both our members, our industry, and the public.

Our members of many backgrounds and interests continue working together to improve the solution mining and cavern utilization industry, move towards answering sometimes difficult technical yet practical questions. 

If you have an interest in any of SMRI's subject areas, you will likely find others in our organization with similar challenges as those you face, and may find valuable knowledge with us at SMRI. At SMRI, if our members have questions, we try to find sound, scientific ways to work towards the answers.

Before you join, we suggest that you to attend an SMRI conference, meet our members, and see what we have in common. The world’s leading experts on solution mining and cavern related subjects are SMRI members. Please consider supporting the industry by joining us.  If you are a government regulator, SMRI has a new class of membership at zero dues rate.
