Subject: How much IS gold polishing sweep worth?
Can anyone tell me about how much pure gold is in 1 pound of
polishing sweep? The polishing sweep would be only polishing
sweep (no trash) and would consist of about 90% karat gold and
the balance in silver. I ask because I KRINGE when I get $80 per
pound for it from the refiner (he comes to the store and buys it
by the pound on the spot). I bet it has AT LEAST 2 ounces of 24k
in it after it is refined.
You should send me a present for the I am going to give you
sells or sends to the refinary their precious metal scrap in it's original
form is wearing a sign saying "rob me" If you approach a refinary in a
will treat you professionaly.You take your scrap,melt it into a homogonous
drill 3 holes on the bottom.Save the filings that come out of the hole.Send
the bar to the refinary with complete confidence.When then recieve it in
this manner,they assume you are professional,who has sent 3 samples for
assay.The mear fact that it appears you have done this is enough.They won't
mess with you,they will steal a different car,in their business almost
everyone leaves the keys in.
If you suspect,even with this preperation your refiner is stealing.Send
the samples to 3 different assayers.Then you have the proof of it.
Also,you are entitled to be paid for what silver and Platinum is present
in your gold.A good refiner will pay you all.Most don't tell you it
exists.And I tell you something else,save everything in the work area.All
the crud that comes off the polishing wheels,even your ceiling tiles after
many years will be a nice bonus.Put a trap in your sink.There's more,but
this will begin your thought process.
Thank you Mark.
