Went to HI TECH, on the advise of a friend of mine. I was at his shop and he told me about these "new guys" he was using. He said he got paid top dollar for a few small rings, on the spot! I had only a little over an ounce of 18k gold and some scrap silver. As a jeweler for over 25 years, I've used several Refiners to refine and sell my old scrap gold, filings, and polishings.I knew what I would get from my "old guy's" Melt fee's, refining fee's, shipping fee's, insurance fee's, a big percentage of the metal value would be gone and I would have to wait 1-2 weeks for my return. My experience with refiners has always felt like a "shell game" or a "box of chocolates" I never knew what I was going to get? Sometimes I felt like I'd been scalped! I took my metal over. They weighed, melted, and did the assay right in front of me.(unheard of) After assay results, they paid me 98% of gold spot price, without the usual fee's, wait, guessing game and hassles. I got the highest % return on my metal,ever! Now I have a "new" Refiner! One that I feel is a staight shooter and a square dealer!

I am a jeweler and have used many refining companies over the past 20 years but overall I have found Hi-Tech to be the most accurate and quickest response of all of them. Gold refining is better understood if you are a jeweler and know what you are refining and therefore there are no surprises. My estimates and their findings have been almost dead on every time. I also appreciate the promt payment. I will continue to use Hi-Tech on a regular basis.
I tried Hi Tech few times and they have been good with me every time. Their assay and my expectation is almost the same every time. They are good people and their customer service is very good. I will continue to do business with them.
