Standard Ore Fire Assay - GOLD & SILVER. Cat # TEST-FIRE Price $39.50
Sulfide Ore Fire Assay with Roast - GOLD & SILVER. Sulfide ores are roasted before assaying, destroying the minerals that prevent the best recovery of precious metals.
Cat # TEST-SULFIDE Price $57.50
Micron Mill Wave Table Testing -maximum 20 lbs. Cat#TEST-TABLE Price $42.00 + $1.00/lb.
Contact us for technical discussion of your ore testing.

Broad Spectrum ICP-AES -(a) 33 elements, suitable for trace metals in soil and rock samples by nitric-aqua regia digestion. The technique involves dissolving the sample in aqua regia and analyzing the liquid by vaporizing it in the very hot "flame" of an argon Induced Coupled Plasma. Cat#TEST-ICP34 $125.00
(b) 33 elements plus gold, platinum, palladium. To ensure an accurate reading for the precious metal analyses, a fire assay is done and the bead is then dissolved in aqua regia and read by the ICP. The balance of the sample is dissolved and processed as in (a) above. Cat #TEST-ICP $175.00
Rare Earth Element - REE has the major advantage of being suitable for low grade samples. All analyses include chondrite plots. The ICP is run after fusing the sample with metaborate. It provides the best overall detection limits of 33 elements. Cat #TEST-REE $135.00
