HOUSTON, US: Clariant International Ltd for the first time has expanded its comprehensive suite of mining-specific product innovations and technical expertise to customers in Mexico. Clariant has been supporting Latin America's mining industry for five decades and now growing its footprint in Mexico. This broadening is a response to the increase in exploration activity within the country.

Clariant mining services are the only supplier in the mining industry to offer customized chemical solutions for the end-to-end mining process, which includes a leading technology in flotation chemistry and explosive emulsifiers. Clariant's wide product portfolio covers all the major ores, especially copper, iron and phosphates, which aligns with the Mexican industry's focus. Clariant's in-depth technical expertise has over 50 years of proven mining experience creating customized solutions for mineral processing.

In particular, customers in Mexico will be supported by Clariant's Global Competency Center for Sulphide Ore Application and Development in Tucson, Arizona, which opened in November 2016. Having the hub for mining research located close to the US-Mexico border will facilitate close cooperation on individual challenges.

"Each mine has its own ore composition, meaning that customized solutions are very important. We look forward to sharing our leading technologies, and extensive experience gained working with customers' mines in Peru, Chile and Brazil, with those in Mexico as the need grows for effective, high-quality solutions throughout the mining value chain," said Jorge Arias, global head of mining, Clariant.
