Hello !

The problem you are facing is due to a bad approximation of the diffusion 
coefficient 'fk' due to your mesh definition: you should have a mesh that 
follows the conductivity discontinuities.

In fact, if your geometry is always this, you can use your strategy using a 
structured mesh that fits the geometry:
vector n = (33,33,5);
vector a = (-0.01,-0.01,0);
vector b = (0.01,0.01,0.0005);
mesh M = structured(n,a,b);

solve(u) in M 
    int(fk*grad(u)*grad(w))   =   int[M zmin](w*q); //
    u = 0 on M zmax;                              

if you change 'n' using (9,9,5),(17,17,5),(33,33,5) you will notice the 
convergence. These values represent the number of *vertices* for each 

If you *need* unstructured meshes, you must define a better mesh and set 
different references for elements of each zone.

Then, in ff3d, you can use these references using the 'reference' instruction:
        function fk = reference(elements,M,ref1:f1[,ref2:f2[,...]]);
for instance if you want the conductivity to be 1E-3 for element of reference 
1 and g for elements of references 2, write:
        function fk = reference(elements, M, 1:1E-3, 2:g);
Beware that if you do not define the function of an existing reference, fk 
will be 0 on those elements...

Did you try to solve the problem with ANSYS using the gmsh mesh?
