SERVICES

Assaying:

The responsibilities of our laboratory are gold assaying, metal analysis, and research and development (R&D).

Assaying monitors the quality of the metal throughout the refining process, determining the fineness of gold and silver. AurumMonaco ’s assaying technology includes traditional fire assay as well as spectrometry. All material arriving at the refinery, whether doré or scrap, is melted and samples are taken. As a general rule, each sample is divided into three parts, one for our customer, one for ourselves and one for arbitration, whenever deemed necessary.

R&D aims to improve the technology and processes used in assaying. Our chemists and engineers rely on years of individual experience in the field to continually improve our techniques.

Smelting

Our smelting department plays an important role in the manufacturing process by either melting fine metal into bars or producing grains from scrap metal for the use of our refinery. Smelting is a critical step in almost all of the services offered by Aurum Monaco so this department is central to our daily operations.

3

Refining

Refining precious metals such as scrap gold and silver, scrap jewellery, or even high grade gold doré requires a chemical process that eliminates unwanted materials and purifies the output, separating valuable gold from other “waste” materials. This task is the responsibility of our Refinery. Our chemists utilize a variety of techniques to improve the quality of fine gold that is produced and delivered to the smelters. At the core we use a proprietary version of the Electrolyse technique.

No nitric acid, cyanide or other hazardous chemicals are used to refine dore, jewellery scrap and any other raw material containing more than 65 % gold to 999.9 gold standard bars for investors or industrial use.

Aurum Monaco refinery is a zero discharge plant. Nox Free. All gas and liquid emissions are well below the European permitted limits.

This method is used by most of the refiners in the world and was improved by our engineers to, for instance, meet pollution reduction and environment protection standards. Our state-of-the-art refining facility and the use of cutting-edge technology, machinery and the professionalism of our employees ensure the best and most accurate service for our customers.
