Gold Refiners

The gold you purchase from MyGold does not look exactly like the precious metal in its raw form when initially found. Gold passes through a refining process as it is prepared for sale on the open market. Though most people are aware gold is refined, the average person does not understand what this process entails. Let’s take a look at exactly what happens to gold during the refining process. The Gold Refining Process A number of different techniques are available for gold refining. If you were to visit gold mines throughout the world, you would find their ore processing techniques are unique yet still have some overarching similarities. Some gold mines use highly idiosyncratic techniques to create alloys made of gold as well as silver, commonly referred to as dore. In general, the gold refining process is that which extracts and removes precious metals from mined material. This extraction and separation process is performed with the mined materials, recycled products and dore. The aim is to remove as many precious metals as possible. Refining techniques range from cupellation to the Miller process, the Wohlwill electrolytic process, fizzer cell, inquartartation and parting, the pyrometallurgical process and beyond. Each refining technique removes base metals in its own unique way. The Most Common Gold Refining Methods The Wohlwill process and Miller process are the most popular gold refining methods for extracting pure gold. The Miller process makes use of gaseous...

An Explanation of Blockchain Plenty of people have attempted to obtain an understanding of blockchain technology only to be inundated with technical jargon that leaves them even more confused. To put it simply, blockchain makes it possible for digital information to be transmitted without being copied. Some are going as far as claiming blockchain technology is the structural foundation for an emerging form of the internet. It is clear the blockchain will remain regardless of the fate of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The fact that Bitcoin is backed by the blockchain should bolster the confidence of all Bitcoin owners as well as prospective buyers. The Value of the Blockchain Financial analysts who study and report on the success of Bitcoin primarily point to the cryptocurrency’s Blockchain technology for its stratospheric rise in value. Yet the blockchain’s value extends beyond securing Bitcoin transactions. The blockchain produces all sorts of other digital value as it serves as a universally applicable electronic ledger of transactions that cannot be breached by outsiders. If you had the ability to travel through time a decade or so into the...
