Advanced Refining Technologies
Great American Mint and Refinery employs state-of-the-art technologies for refining both gold and silver in our efficient and environmentally friendly “ zero discharge” facility. We react scrap gold with Aqua Regia in custom designed borosilicate glass reactors that are equipped with refrigerated reflux condensers, Teflon agitators, and NOx eliminators.
Our silver refinery uses reagent grade nitric acid, and ultra-high purity silver nitrate, both of which are manufactured in-house. We use custom built and ultra efficient Wasas-Thum Electrolytic Silver Refining Cells to decompose the scrap silver and convert it into 999.9 Fine pure silver crystals for use in manufacturing silver coins. The company is proud of its closed loop environmentally sound processes and its advanced environmentally sound facility. We employ environmental standards that far exceed the requirements of local, state and federal statutes in order to ensure the safety of our employees and the environment.
