The melting is the process which homogenizes the material in order to obtain a highly representative sample which is the basis for the following processes of analysis and refining.
The choice of the technique of homogenization depends on the properties of the materials.
In order to determine the title, or the amount of precious metals contained, we cooperate with a modern laboratory able to perform any kind of chemical and metallurgical analysis.
Each analysis is performed and certified by sworn assayers of Precious Metals which are bound to work diligently (Federal act for the control of precious metals, art. 32) and supervised by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control in Switzerland.
The refining is the procedure which sepair and isolate the noble metals contained in the resulting bar from the melting process.
The features of the material determine the choice of treatment to use, the most common methods are the inquartation method, electrolytic refining, the dissolution in aqua regia with chemical selective reduction or through the Miller process, better known as chlorination process.
