refining precoius metals

Smiths, please don't laugh or gasp but I've never refined my studio sweeps in all these years. (Gold & Silver) Anyone out there want to give me some suggestions, stories, tips, etc.?
It's time. Please advise. thank you.

Re: refining precoius metals

Robyn,

I suggest you seperate them out and send them into your local refiner or get quotes from several of the refiners or the firm that supplies your precious metals. Find out how they want to receive the scraps and then ship it to them. They will give you cash in return or fresh alloyed metal. I would not invest the time and money to learn refining.

Spend your valuable time making new inventory.

My humble oppinion.
