Assay Analysis

Testing Gold with XRF Technology

Why We Test Gold.

Gold and Silver are elements with a great number of desirable characteristics. In its purest form, Gold is known to be very malleable and a great conductor of electricity. Moreover, Gold’s non-tarnishing qualities make it a quite desirable metal. Silver also has a large number of industrial uses, and it’s beautiful colour and shine makes it amazing for jewellery. Similar to Gold, it is much too malleable in its purest form. In most cases, precious metals such as Silver and Gold are not alone when used in making jewellery, coins, and houseware. Other metals such as Copper are added to create a stronger alloy. Moreover, when Gold is first mined, it is not pure as other elements will naturally be mixed in.  At Instant Gold Refining, we are able to determine the purity of your precious metals with the use of our in-house XRF technology. Testing Gold is the most commonly done by this method.

Test Your Gold

Once you bring your metals in, we first conduct an evaluation of the products to determine the best course of action. A member of our team will take your metals and melt them to remove as many impurities as possible. Once the bar has been poured and cleaned, we conduct an assay analysis of the bar. Our XRF technology will provide us with precise percentages of the metals which are in the bar. Based on these tests and numbers, we are able to determine how much the bar is worth. A team-member will then reach a settlement with you and you can choose how you would like to be paid. We offer payouts through cheque, bank wire transfer, or a bullion product swap.
