Guld Reserv is a Nordic group of companies specialising in the recycling of precious metals and the placement of precious metal in the trade in products. Guld Reserv is also active in Sweden and Norway.
At moving points of purchase around Finland and at travelling shopping outlets in Sweden and Norway, we serve in matters related to the purchase and recycling of precious metals.
Our mission is based on personal, honest, fast and fair customer service. Our mobile shopping points are located where our customers are – we serve in our partners’ premises or gr gold cars. The customer can order a point of purchase in their own locality or even in their home yard.
We also accept precious metal items for evaluation by post: we deliver to the customer a free, sealed GR Gold Mail shipment and after the customer has accepted the estimate we will pay the agreed amount to the customer’s account.

INFORMATION ON THE RECYCLING OF GOLD AND PRECIOUS METALS

Scrap gold – gold recycling

 

Gold is one of the most valuable naturally occurring metals. It is a soft and moldable metal, and the single most common use of gold is jewelry making. The definition of pure gold is 24 carats. It is typically hardened with silver or copper, and in Finland the typical gold content of the jewellery is 14 carats (58.5 gold and 41.5 other metals). Gold is also widely used in industry, dentistry and other medical sectors to a growing extent.
Did you know that selling your old gold and silver items will do an environmental act? All scrap gold and silver items go into recycling. You can reduce the amount of gold and silver that can be dug from the mines by putting your old gold and silver jewellery in circulation.

The disadvantages of gold and silver mining are major environmental pollutants around the world. 80 from gold production goes into the production of jewellery, so anyone wearing jewelry should worry about the environmental impact of the powerful toxins used in gold mining. The jewellery made by Finnish goldsmiths is now almost invariably made of recycled gold.

Since as many as two-thirds of the gold in use comes directly from the mines, gold objects should be recycled much more. Digging for one amount of gold needed for a gold ring produces 20 tons of waste. The rock-like rocks contain only about one and a half (1.5) milligrams of 1000 kilograms of soil. In gold ore, the gold content shall be at least two (2) grams per 1000 kg, and even in this case the deposit must be wide and easily excavated by open-cast.

A common way to separate gold from the aggregate is to inject cyanide over the aggregate soffen. After separation of the gold from the aggregate, it is purified from the impurities by heating in the melting plant. Toxic emissions such as smog and acid rain are released in the heating process. Worldwide, metal smelters emit 142 million tonnes of sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere each year. This is 13 % of the world’s environmental emissions. Environmental problems related to gold mining are also related to, for example, silver and copper excavation.

It is responsible to recycle unnecessary and unused precious metal sandis -ecological is an irreplaceable value for our environment.
