 Ross Metals ASSAYING DEPARTMENT Sampling           

SAMPLING


Sampling is done in our clean, modern temperature controlled environment adjacent to the smelting and sweeps rooms. A sample is selected, sealed and made ready for the laboratory.

   
 Ross Metals CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN   

CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN


All incoming samples are treated three times to prevent errors. Most assay houses only duplicate the process and then average their conclusions. Our extra effort assures you the most accurate results in the industry. 

 
 Ross Metals CUPELLATION  

CUPELLATION


The "Wet Assay" as it is sometimes referred, is actually cupellation with chemical breakdown. It is still the most reliable and proven method known. Here the sample is wrapped in a lead foil and is being absorbed into the cupel.
