Our qualified chemists and assayers are dedicated to configuring optimized metal recovery and results.

Common Methods of Gold Analysis:

  • Fire Assay

  • Atomic Absorption

  • ICP OE

Fire Assay

We provide gold, silver, and specialty assays for platinum group metals. Beads generated from fire assay are analyzed by graphite furnace/flame absorption.

Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), is an analytical technique used for the detection of chemical elements. It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses the inductively coupled plasma to produce excited atoms and ions that emit electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths characteristic of a particular element. It is a flame technique with a flame temperature in a range from 6000 to 10000 K. The intensity of this emission is indicative of the concentration of the element within the sample.

Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) is a spectroanalytical procedure for the quantitative determination of chemical elements using the absorption of optical radiation (light) by free atoms in the gaseous state. AAS can be used to determine over 70 different elements in solution.
