Because of these.


If you're on goldrefiningforum.com I have large Nevada refiner who can confirm.
Metallic specimens. Minus the minerals. Equals easier & quicker processing. Average Au content for silver & copper is at bottom percentage average of 2%. That's around $60,000 for less than a five gal bucket of copper like this. For those who contend the mineral is full of "pyrite". Consider this is in same vicinity.

Show us the written assay report from the refiner-omit anything personal.
