The responsibilities of our Laboratory are gold assaying and research and development (R&D).
Assaying monitors the quality of the metal throughout the refining process, determining the fineness of gold. SATIS’ assaying technology includes traditional fire assay as well as spectrometry. All material arriving at the refinery is melted and samples are taken.
R&D aims to improve the technology and processes used in assaying. Our chemists and engineers rely on years of individual experience in the field to continually improve our techniques.
