The method is NOT suitable for rare earth elements. This digestion is used for Cu, Ni, Co, Pb, Zn, Mo and Ag assays. The digestion uses nitric, perchloric, hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acids with temperatures to °C. Assay packages for base metals using 4 acid digestions are then analyzed by ICP-OES or ICP-MS.   An assay is any test to determine the amount and types of precious metal in a sample. They can be used to confirm if a piece of gold jewelry is 22k or 24k, to distinguish between silver and platinum, to authenticate bullion, and more. Assays are all means to the same end, but the methodology and equipment they use to find results varies widely.

  Precious metals dealings do not use avoirdupois, they always use the troy system instead. Average customers looking to sell their scrap gold or silver often know the weight of their lot in pounds or ounces, but refiners always convert this to troy measurements when dealing with others in the business.

Get this from a library. Assay methods used in CANMET for the determination of precious metals. [P E Moloughney; Canada Centre for Mineral and. A metallurgical assay is a compositional analysis of an ore, metal, or alloy.

Some assay methods are suitable for raw materials; others are more appropriate for finished goods. Raw precious metals are assayed by an assay is assayed by titration, gold by cupellation and platinum by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP OES).

The matrix (the material other than the precious metals) always affects the assay method used. As in all analytical chemistry procedures, the matrix of the sample, as well as the particular mix of analytes, will determine such things as the collector metal used in fire assay, or which wavelength (or combination of wavelengths) is used in ICP.

Assaying, in chemical analysis, process of determining proportions of metal, particularly precious metal, in ores and metallurgical products.

The most important technique, still used today, grew largely out of the experiments of the ancient alchemists and goldsmiths in seeking to find or create precious metals by subjecting base metals and minerals to heat.

Mix acids to form aqua regia. Aqua regia is Latin for “royal water.” This solution is used to remove gold from a scrap of metal or an ore. To make it, mix three parts hydrochloric acid and one part nitric acid.

For example, mL of aqua regia will contain mL of hydrochloric acid and mL of nitric : K. No. 25 P.E. Moloughney, Assay Methods Used in CANMET for the Determination of Precious Metals, SPE, CANMET, Ottawa, he extraction ratio E, defined as the ratio of the sample plus flux to the collector, (Ni + S) and the sulphur content, S., expressed as a percentage of sulphur in the collector.

PRECIOUS METAL ANALYSIS Accurate and precise precious metal analysis can be performed by using fire assay, cyanide leach, aqua regia or INAA. Precious metal analysis is usually determined by using either a lead or nickel sulphide fire assay pre-concentration step prior to analysis.

This is required to separate the precious metals from the matrix. Keywords: Fire assay, geochemical prospecting, MP-AES, precious metals, rocks and ores.

PRECIOUS metals (Ru, Rh, Pd, Os, Ir, Pt and Au; some-times Ag is also added to this list) are used in a variety of applications. Concentration and distribution of Au, Ag, Pt and Pd in various types of rock formations have attracted. The precision and accuracy of ICP methods make them highly suitable for fi neness determination of precious metals for hallmarking.

Anybody interested in the analytical chemistry of precious metals would do well to study the excellent reference works by Beamish and Van Loon (1), Beamish (3), Bugbee (4) and Smith (5, 6). The precious metals were isolated using a combination of the nickel sulphide fire-assay and Te coprecipitation procedures and quantified by ICP-MS using two internal standards to correct for matrix and drift effects; Cd for the light elements (Ru, Rh and Pd) and Tl for the heavy elements (Os, Ir, Pt and Au).

The Fire Assay Method, otherwise known as the Cupellation Method, analyzes gold with the highest level of accuracy. Measuring between 2 and 3 parts per thousand, this method involves the use of a sample size of usually of a gram of the substance in question.

Most hallmarking authorities around the world employ the Fire Assay Method.

Accurate and reliable test results remove variability – and subjectivity – in measuring the value of precious metals and ensuring a fair transaction.

Many businesses are now turning to Thermo Scientific Niton portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers for fast, accurate, and most importantly, nondestructive analysis of the precious metals. A new environmentally safe fire refining precious metal assay method is provided wherein bismuth oxide is used with a special flux composition as the precious metal collector and the cupelling procedure is performed in a controlled temperature range.
