The laboratory also provides a superior level of safety and comfort for Metallix’s laboratory employees. Extremely efficient filtration and ventilation systems keep employees safe from contaminants, fumes and dust and ensures emissions entering the atmosphere are similarly clean.
After your precious metal bearing material has been processed on the refinery floor, samples of each lot are sent to the laboratory. The samples are tested for their precious metal type and content.
We can detect gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium, as well as other elements, through methods that include fire assay, chemical analysis, X-ray, titration, gravimetric and ICP.
“We are extremely pleased that after years of meticulous research, design and implementation, we are now analyzing precious metal-bearing materials in our cutting-edge laboratory – the scope of which will enhance our value to our customers, suppliers and business partners.”
– Maria Piastre, Metallix President
