Precious Metals Refining Do’s and Don’ts


  • Visit your refiner. Get an understanding of their operation. They should be willing to show and explain their process. Find out if the company actually refines or sells to another company.
  • Watch a few of your lots being melted and prepared for sampling
  • Separate your scrap and keep records. Compare each return with previous shipments to develop a history of shipments.


  • Ship to a refiner just because he has a truck in your area. Reliable shippers such as UPS, Federal Express, and even the USPS can take registered shipments up to 75 pounds and $25,000 in value and can usually get the shipment to your refiner faster.
  • Sell your scrap to a broker who estimates its value and pays you cash. His margin more than exceeds the money you’d save by cheating Uncle Sam on your income tax.
  • Hold your refining because you think the prices of precious metals are going up. Have your metals refined and held by the refiner or returned to you, because it is easier to sell the pure product quickly than to market the unknown scrap..
  • Rejoice if you receive a much larger return than you expected in your floor sweeps or sinks. It is usually an indication that your plant is performing inefficiently since waste should be kept to a minimum and collected at the tool, bench, or polishing tanks.

WARNING ***Offered a Metric Ton “Deal”? ****

Have you recently been offered or heard about special deals in gold dust or African, Hong Kong, Singapore gold?

You should know that these “deal opportunities” — measured in metric tons and coming from unknown circles — are commonplace in active markets like the one we are now experiencing.

Over the years we’ve explored a number of them and found that they have all been bogus. In fact, the professional traders on Wall Street dismiss them out of hand.
These deals always arise from someone “who knows a lawyer that has a client who does business with a guy who…, etc., etc.” In fact, We’ve never been able to ascertain who the principals actually are in any of these proposed transactions.

Think about it for a moment…25 metric ton of gold equates to 803,750 troy ounces of gold, which is valued today at approx. $727 million. By comparison, all of the gold vaults serving the New York Commodity Exchange report that they hold a combined total of just under 850,000 troy ounces today. So this proposal involves a gold amount nearly equal to all of that held on the New York Exchange.

Moreover, who do you know that would do a deal valued at 3/4ths of a billion dollars through someone they don’t know, but found through the internet, or through someone else “who knows someone who knows someone”?

Also, gold does not sell at a discount. Why would someone sell it for 3% less than they can get on the open market?

People learn of these proposals and get all excited about getting involved with them. We chased a few of them – for anywhere from 25 metric tons to 500 metric tons — in our early years in this business, but learned from the old salts on Wall Street that they are all just a waste of time.

We don’t mean to burst anyone’s bubble, but thought you ought to have this perspective.
We always consider the source of these proposals. We really don’t take any proposed deal of more than 150,000 troy ounces – which is just under 5 “metric tons” – very seriously anymore.
