Our analysis and melting techniques reflect the highest possible standards for accuracy and consistency.

This is fundamental in our work to reclaim the maximum amount of precious metals for our customers. It helps us maintain our strong record of repeat clients and ensures a long-lasting business relationship.

Our laboratory is equipped with the state of the art technology, including the use of Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy and ICP Mass Spectrometry. We combine these with the tried-and-true fire assay for maximum accuracy.

Our competition’s fast and cheap x-ray methods can mean a margin of error of up to 2%!

Dental Refinery:

Core Scientific helps educate dentists on how to maximize their returns on extracted crowns. Many dental offices still throw their extractions away or sell them to unscrupulous people that pay cash on the spot. When you send your crowns to Core Scientific, we do a full analysis on the material refined. What does this mean to you? Hundreds or in some cases thousands more!

Diverse Techniques:

-X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy: A quick analysis of a material’s composition.
