Precious Metal Refining

Norman is a full service refiner for all precious metals, including GOLD, SILVER, and PALLADIUM.

My business is buying and refining all precious metals. I perform all assays by FIRE ASSAYS, not like many other refiners that use the XRF (X-ray) method that leads to inaccurate assays, typically 2-5% lower, under good conditions. Fire assays are the most accurate in the world period! Under 2-3 parts per ten thousand (0.02%). Please check for yourself by going to this independent web site and read the facts. Here is the link:

We specialize in refining for the jewelry industry, processing everything from scrap to polishing sweeps.
