  Refining Accountability Table

Gold scrap refining has stolen the lime light or rather the golden light recently as gold's value has soared. G&S Metals and Refiners has been a refiner of karat gold scrap since 1954, well before the $1,000 gold price per ounce barrier was surpassed and that experience has stayed with us, even as the cost of gold waxes and wanes. We remain the premier precious metals refiner for south eastern Michigan, and extend the same great service to all of our customers, regardless of their distance.

With our proven track record of honesty and integrity, the simplest accountability structure that doesn't rely on hidden fees to reduce overall payouts, and with our scheduled one hour turn around on karat solids, we extend the same great service we've been known for since our opening in 1954.

NEW Changes in Refining: G&S will only process clean filings, call the office prior to shipping.  G&S Metals and Refiners does NOT refine the following. 

If you want to ship your gold scrap refining to us, please follow our tips on packaging your scrap for shipment and include a refining shipping form with each batch of refining. For karat gold scrap we also have an estimated insurance value calculator to reduce the guessing involved in adding insurance to your shipment. If you are unfamiliar with pennyweights (dwt) feel free to use our weight converter.
