Assays, Qualitative Analysis, Refining, and Mineral Market Consulting.
A lab for the small to intermediate miner as well as the weekend prospector.
I provide assays on ore, recovery resins, precipitates, and e-scrap to determine the amount of recoverable bullion per ton, lb, or oz of material. I will occasionally refine such materials as well. I also help find buyers of various metallic and non-metallic ores for those who have a few tons ready to ship.
I also offer consultation on the various processes of leaching ores.
For those who are starting up a leaching operation to recover gold or silver from an ore, or that are having issues with their current operation,
I can help you design a working system, or help (Hopefully) troubleshoot the issues with your current process.
(Iron Sulfides, Arsenic Sulfides & Copper Sulfides)
(Cyanidation, Chlorination, Thiosulfate & Thiourea)
Solution Purification and Concentration
(Carbon Adsorption, Ion Exchange Resins & Solvent Extraction)
(Zinc Precipitation, Aluminum Precipitation, Electrowinning & Recovery from Non-cyanide Solutions)

The photos below are of types of material that I have assayed, and can refine.
For karat gold, gold bearing electronic scrap, recovery resins, precipitates, and pregnant solutions that I refine,
clients will receive payment in bullion or a money order for the value of their portion of the gold recovered.
