The function of the
Frisco Research and Development department (FID) of Minera Frisco is to carry out activities for the optimum use of reserves through the mineralogical characterization of the minerals and the evaluation of their metallurgical response. FID currently has a project laboratory in Zacatecas and technical personnel in most of its operating units who carry out lab and pilot tests in the search for improvement projects.
This permanent study of minerals through chemical assay, mineral characterization and metallurgical research is fundamental for process definition and improvement. Moreover, the monitoring of recovery and product quality guarantees the profitability of the operations.
