Today’s best tools

We’ve invested in today’s best XRF (X-ray fluorescence) machines to determine the approximate value of metals early on. But because the XRF process presents too many variables to provide the consistent and accurate results that meet our exacting standards and deliver the fair value our customers deserve, we still rely on the corrected fire assay process and its centuries-long record of accuracy for final testing.

But that’s not to say we’re all about the past. In addition to the XRF machines, our commitment to today’s best technology and equipment includes:

  • Precise and accurate scales calibrated quarterly by outside certified specialists
  • New state-of-the-art lab offering:
    • Rigorous corrected fire assay analyses
    • Diamond and gemstone recovery services for jewelers and others
  • “Green” technology
    • Bag house dust collection system to treat melting department smoke
    • Chemical fume scrubber for acid and chemical fumes generated throughout our processes
  • In-house refining processes to return your pure metal in a variety of forms:
    • Shot
    • Crystal
    • Sponge
    • Bar
