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've recently made contact with a Mineral Broker in Canada that has contact with people in various industries that will buy Ores of
Metallic and Non-Metallic Minerals. I will help interested clients establish a market for their Ore(s) through this contact for a fee.
Check out my blog post for an update on the status of the above contact.
If you have some Ore for Sale, read my post and send me a message.
I was clearly told by my Canadian contact that he would work with everyone that I put in touch with him. 3-way phone consultation is available.
This contact requires a 10 kg sample of the Ore to be sold for testing, with an assay report stating the percentage of each precious metal within the ore. If the values stated match those within the ore, shipping arrangements will be made, and a standing letter of credit will be issued that you can draw against for the value of each ton of Ore shipped. Shipping costs may be paid by the buyer.
So, for example, if your ore is worth $1000 a ton for precious metal content, you will be paid $700 per ton shipped.
My contact and I take 30% of the value of the bullion recovered in a 50/50 split.
Contact me for the shipping address.
Aside from the contact above,
I have other contacts that will buy Sulfide Ores and Black Sands that contain Gold, Silver, or PGM's.
On my Marketing and Consulting page, I have a post of a message I received from someone seeking some Copper Ore,
as well as another contact seeking various grades of Gold Ore.
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.
