Understanding Our Gold Refining

Gold Refining rate-98% return. Accurate, reliable, fast. We specialize in refining American scrap gold, filings, spent casting gold. Just from the jewelry industry. Our refined gold is all post consumer/post process recycled gold. As a strict policy we do not accept lots from offshore or process ores. If you want your actual molecules of gold back or guaranteed post consumer sourced gold we do just that. We made a video of our process during a demonstration arranged for students from G.I.A.

We are a team of long experienced professionals dedicated to making your job easier.
