A Refined Approach

Tips for Capturing Metal, Choosing a Refiner, and Maximizing Returns

The latest digital book from MJSA Press offers a comprehensive guide to managing metals and ensuring you’re not (literally) throwing away profits.

A Refined Approach covers everything from managing inventory to capturing all of that metal waste—hard scrap, sweeps, sludge, and anything in between—and preparing a lot for refining. It also offers guidance on how to choose and work with a refiner, along with an overview of what the actual sampling and assaying processes entail.
