VIGALAB provides sample mineral preparation services and chemical analysis to the mining industry in Chile, including fire assay, trace metals analysis, geochemical tests and calibration standards preparation.

The Chilean minerals industry is expanding due to increased development of copper, gold, silver, molybdenum, iron, zinc, lead and other mineral ores, says Intertek. Significant mineral and mining areas in Chile are located in the north, close to Antofogasta and Atacama.
