Gold & Metals

Raw Gold

Raw gold is any gold alloy in its natural state. Because raw gold is a natural substance (found in nature), it is not pure gold, but rather a high gold content precious metal alloy. Gold nuggets, gold flakes and gold dust are types of raw gold. Most raw gold averages eighteen karat (18K) or 750 parts per 1000 in purity.

Raw Gold Composition

Raw gold is a naturally formed high gold content precious metal alloy. The composition of this alloy is a large percentage of gold combined mostly with silver, copper and lead. In addition there may be other metals, but in much smaller proportions. Silver, gold, copper and lead are highly related metals. In fact, they are all mining by-products of each other. Where there is gold, usually all the other metals can be found as well, but in varying proportions. This happens the other way around too.

Raw Gold Purity

Most raw gold is in the range of 750 parts per 1000 purity. This is the equivalent of eighteen karat (18K) gold. However, it raw gold can be as low in purity as 14K. Here at Toronto Gold Agent, we are very familiar with raw gold because we have bought plenty of it. See refinery result sample below.

Nugget Gold Purity

In our experience, gold nuggets, for the most part, are seventeen karats (17K) in average. Larger size nuggets, since they are a natural substance, are un-uniform in composition. Parts of the nugget may be as pure as twenty two karat in purity, with other part very much lower. The best gold refinery result we have so far obtained from nuggets just over eighteen karat (18K) in purity. So far we have never seen better. See refinery result sample below.

Gold Dust and Flake Purity

Gold dust and flakes are very similar in purity to gold nuggets. However, there is a major difference. Since the gold nugget is a single unit, is was formed in only one place. On the other hand, gold dust and flakes are small particles. Because of this, and because it takes a lot of effort to gather, often, gold dust and flake samples were collected from multiple locations. However, even like this, most gold dust and flake refinery results are also in the range of eighteen karat (18K).

Gold Nuggets, Flakes and Dust Origin and Purity Relationship

Gold nuggets, flakes and dust are for the most part found in rivers and alluvial deposits. As per our research and experience here at Portland Gold Buyers, LLC most raw gold is in the range of eighteen karat (18K) or 750 parts per 1000. This opinion is based on the refining reports and assay we got from them. It is our understanding, but not our direct experience, that in some parts of the world, raw gold can be as low in content as fourteen karat (14K) or 585 parts per 1000.

Sell Gold

Selling Raw Gold

When selling gold nuggets, dust and flakes, have the expectation of getting paid to the equivalent of eighteen karat (18K) jewelry. That is the average content of the material. Since nuggets have plenty of mineral trapped within, a certain level of discount for that non-gold weight is reasonable, but not too much, as that mineral is very light.
