Gold Analysis

High precision laboratory testing to determine the quality of gold in your samples

The method of choice for the accurate determination of the gold content, particularly in non-ferrous concentrate, is by classical fire assay.

It is essential that it is carried out with meticulous care and Bureau Veritas' laboratory technicians are greatly experienced in the techniques and processes of fire assay and their analysis is regarded as outstanding in the industry.

Fire assay is a well-established way of isolating the precious metal material by fusion processes. A range of highly accurate techniques may then be used to determine the concentration of gold in the original sample. These include gravimetry, Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (FAAS), and Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICPOES).

International standards

Bureau Veritas undertakes gold analysis in accordance with international standards such as ISO 10378 and 11426.
