The surface facility will also serve for the storage of physical samples extracted from the facility and its surroundings which currently include over 1,500 metres of borehole core samples and more than 500 rock and soil samples representing potential sites for the future Czech deep geological repository (DGR) and parts of the underground research facility itself. The conducting of future experiments at the facility will result in a gradual increase in the number of samples extracted from both the Bukov URF and potential repository sites as a result of the planned geological investigation work to around 20 kilometres of core samples and roughly a thousand rock samples which will be archived for use in further verification work connected with the DGR development process.
Part of the surface facility will consist of an educational and conference centre for the presentation of work conducted in connection with the development of the future DGR and experiments performed in the underground laboratory complex. An experimental hall will also be built for the verification and testing of handling and demonstration technologies.
The buildings will be architecturally integrated into the existing relief of a partly unused area of the B-1 working of the Rožná I mine complex.
