In house gold refining


#1

Regarding the thread about old gold, I have a lot of customers
who want to have me make something with their old gold & I
explain to them that it is not recommended to use it for casting.
However, I have seen ads for a small refiner in JCK, called the
Simplicity Refining System, manufactured by Shor International
Corp. It costs $595 and supposedly only costs $1-2 per oz. to
operated. According to the ad, it uses no toxic chemical, and has
no fumes or smells (unless you are refining platinum). It has
supposedly be marketed for over 10 yrs, world wide. Comes with a
lifetime warrantee. It refines to at least 99.5% pure gold.

Has anyone actually seen one of these or heard of someone who
uses one? I am really curious.

I highly recommend the Shor unit. Everyone I personally know
that uses one was shocked to see an average 30% increase in the
amount of gold returned (compared to sending to a refiner). Draw
you own conclusions! Peter Shor recently told me that he has
redesigned the unit to totally eliminate the odor.

I have one. It works pretty well, and is not too hard to master.
The question is : do you want to become a refiner ?? If you don’t
have too much scrap, it may be more efficient to trade the old
gold for new casting grain .

I’ve got one. I used it for about a year. My biggest problem
with it has to do with the fact that I work with platinum and am
too lazy to keep the metals seperate. It doesn’t take a lot of
platinum to screw up a lot. If the lot is contaminated with
platinum, it has to be diluted with copper before refining.
Otherwise I’d call it a real good investment. I never checked to
see what the chemicals were costing me, but I’m sure that it was
a little closer to $10/oz recovered.
