Identification Checklist for Precious Metals

This Identification Check List for Precious Metals sets up a general basis for identifying types and grades of precious metals scrap by the scrap processor who will be familiar both to the precious metals refiner and to the plants gener-ating precious metals scrap.

By checking this identification list, the scrap processor gives the refiner a fairly accurate conception of the material the processor has on hand and offers a basis for the refiner to quote an estimated price for the material.

Due to the high values and the constantly changing char-acter of precious metal scrap, it is often the practice in the industry to require a sample to be submitted before giving refining schedules.
