As long as we are the subject of gold refining, I have been using
NTR Metals. They melt and do what I believe is a spectrum analysis.
Does anyone know how accurate this type of assay is compared to
A refiner calls me and wants my business, I tell him I am happy with
myrefiner, I get 98%, no assay fee, I get paid within 20-40 minutes
while I wait. I am told spectrum analysis is not as accurate and
that I do not get paid for other metals. In the quantities I have
refined, I believe the trade off of not having to pay the assay fee
mitigates any loss of the small amount of silver I do not get paid
for. Another advantage for me is that when gold hits a high, I do not
have to pay shipping and wait and possibly get a lower dollar value
when the gold drops during the time I wait. Any accurate info would
