September 29, 2013. Seminole Metals Refinery is offering a Free White Paper Report on Gold as a means to attract potential gold buyers. The following information will give you details on different reasons to buy gold, different ways to buy gold and why you should only wear jewelry produced from eco-friendly mined and refined gold. We sell gold below the spot market price and do not charge commissions or bid-ask spreads.

HOW MUCH DO MINERS PAY TO PRODUCE GOLD?
Each miner produces gold for different pricing. At the end of the day the variables include capital costs, extraction expenses, processing, logistics, amortization, taxes, and other costs. Usually big mining companies have large capital costs and expenditure of investment before one gram of gold is produced. Small miner costs are simple, fixed and typically mine at a profit. Also a lot depends on the type of gold ore the miner is mining. Some miners have gold mines that only have gold, or maybe silver as a secondary metal they can economically process. .Other miners have gold ore that is highly poly-metallic meaning there are multiple types of metals in the ore that can be separated and sold giving multiple products coming from one ore. Miners with poly-metallic gold ores have a better chance of making gold cheaper because the revenues from the sale of the other types of by-product metals are offsetting expenses in mining. In many instances the miner gets his gold for free after he sold off his zinc, iron, aluminum, titanium and other metals in the gold ore.
The answer to how much it costs for miners to produce gold is between, “$300 to $1,200” per troy ounce. Any miner paying more than that is simply in a project that is top heavy in costs and other factors.
WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR ECO-FRIENDLY MINED GOLD JEWELRY
Here is a need to know subject and should be a mandatory warning label on all gold jewelry. After you read this you will think about that gold jewelry you own or gold rings such as wedding bands. A simple test can show real content of what you are wearing. First and foremost is a little science and facts. There are two types of health issues at hand from a result of absorption of metal elements into the body. The human body has a chemistry which includes certain salts and acids that breaks down metal elements. Just like erosion and time the further erosion occurs as these elements absorb into our bodies. The elements break away from the jewelry at the microscopic size level from our natural acids, salts and water and they absorb directly into the body if the jewelry has skin contact. Even when gold is purified to 99.9% fine purity the impure portion has elements you would not want in your body. Some can be toxic elements that form naturally in the environment whereby no known refinement method from smelting, electronics, or chemicals can make gold 100% pure. If it were pure gold it would have to be in gas form not a physical matter form. Natural impurities like arsenic and mercury that exists in the environment are toxic to the body. Alloys used to make gold such as 10, 12, 14, 18 and 22 carat are usually alloyed with one or more ,metals such as copper, silver, palladium, iron, nickel, zinc tungsten. Nickel is toxic as well as arsenic or mercury.
There are many ways miners use chemicals but if the miner’s gold is refined and fabricated 99.9% pure, almost all the elements of toxicity are removed. Chemicals used by miners include cyanide, mercury, acids. In refining the chemicals are burned off or other methods of separating impurities from pure gold remove 99.9% of the impurities presence. People should be more concerned of custom gold jewelry especially between 18 ct and 22 carat in purity. Why? Because gold is malleable it can be pounded into shape. Gold is also easily melted so it can be molded. Gold nuggets, gold flakes and dust in the environment are typical 18 carat to 22 carat in purity right out of the ground. Gold from veins in rock vary dramatically in purity but is not difficult to crush and break down, then cyanide and or use mercury. After the process and gold is separated to the gold is easily melted and then formed into jewelry. Many small miners that use these chemicals sell their gold to dealers that sell to the jewelry industry. Not knowing the origin of the gold could be unhealthy in larger amounts of trace elements of cyanide, mercury and other acids still remain in the gold. You would not know it exists unless you had tested your jewelry to find out or got sick from the toxicity.
Environmentally friendly gold starts at the mine. Miners of this type of gold do not use chemicals to process a concentrate of 18 to 22 carat purity. The gold then leaves the hands of the miner and goes straight to a smelter. The gold is melted and the impurities form a slag dark like substance at the top of the molten gold. The slag is scooped off then the molten is further refined using chemical and electricity to form purity levels of 99.99%. At that purity level the impurities are microscopic. From there the gold pure is alloyed with other metals. Here is where the purity chain can get sort of hazy. Toxicity from metal is known to cause neurological and blood disorders and disease, cancer, tumors. This is especially true of mercury poising. Chemicals like arsenic and cyanide are certainly poisonous to people. Other elements like lead are poisonous. Iron rusts and rust is toxic. All these impurities can easily absorb from skin touching the metal over time. A few simple tests can tell what is in your jewelry.
The instruments used for testing are at a laboratory level or perhaps an exploration company having specialized mobile, “handheld”
