    Shot 9950 on my XRF (which is enough for jewellers to use), about 1kg of scrap which we got as you can see around 565.6g of fine...

    Sorry about the poor quality pic... from the phone.

    I think you'll find it'll test higher after you melt some of it into a lump.

    I had assumed you were looking at refining silver. I thought that the yield was a bit low for silver refining.

    Good Job.

    Would love to come up and see how you do it.

    The powder is the gold, its just a matter of washing it then ready for melting.
