We offer a wide range of metallurgical and mineral processing tests. Our laboratory has more than 900 m2 where we develop the laboratory scale and pilot plant tests, located in a field of 4.700 m2.

We have standard tests of the mining industry and we have also developed our own tests validated by our clients.

In this way we work closely with our customers observing the tests where we have found innovations in the processes that have allowed us to generate benefits in the efficiency of the processes.


We perform Crushing and Grinding tests, both at the laboratory scale and at the pilot plant.
