REFINING

Over the years, many of our customers have sent us their genuine gold leaf residue for reclamation of the precious metal. Since the same facilities are used for our own reclamation, you can be sure that the process is performed with care and efficiency. Please return residue to the attention of the Refining Department, and we will remit the value of the reclaimed gold minus a refining charge.
