Yes, I work with Alaska nuggets. They generally run in the
neighborhood of .900 fine. There are those which run much higher,
but I've never run into any as low as 14k. The melting point is
always well above that of 14k.
Oops sorry, I meant how close are the nuggets to 24k, not 14k.
That'll teach me to read what I write.
Alaska gold tends to be alloyed with copper as opposed to
California gold which is more often mixed with silver.
Thanks, that's a great help.
The customer who bought the gold says she was informed it is 24k.
But I'd wonder about that, wouldn't you? unless of course she has
documentation from the refiner. I await more info from the customer.
