Assaying & Refining
In order to determine the purity and composition of your scrap lot, it will be melted and then sampled. Each sample is clearly identified as to customer and lot number. With this sample, we are able to determine the content of the metal via a fire-assay process or through the use of X-ray flourescence (XRF).
The age-old fire assay process is the most widely recognized process because of it’s accuracy in determining the precious metal content of a sample. The XRF utilizes the latest technology available to us and assists us with verification of all metals contained in the sample. This insures greater accuracy and payment to the customers.
Dillon Gage takes this step very seriously because we take your trust very seriously. That’s why our assay services are the most accurate in the industry.
In fact, major jewelry vendors rely on Dillon Gage assayers to verify the purity of their inventory.
From the most precise fire assay to our XRF assay, we can perform any analysis you need.
