  • Use a bench bad, save all filings and trimmings from stone setting, seat cutting etc.  Keep high grade materials separate from low grade items such as buffings, floor sweeps etc.  Never mix your high grade materials with your low grade materials, regardless with what your "refiner" may recommend.
  • Use your bench pad to collect finishing wheel debris, keep separate from cleaner filings.
  • Buy a small vacuum cleaner for use only within your precious metal production areas to collect lower grade materials. Place filter bags in with you sweeps.  These bags may contain considerable amounts of metal. 
  • After removing high grade materials, vacuum you area daily to help reduce airborne contaminates and capture that otherwise lost precious metal.
  • Segregate gold by karatage.  By so doing, you give yourself the option of re-melting on-site rather then sending your goods out for recovery.
  • Save any materials that have come in contact with precious metals.
  • Save sink sludges and quench tank residues.  Let the liquid settle, decant, and retain sludges for you floor sweepings drum.  This process works well with sonic rinses.
  • Save all filters including those from air conditioning units.  Filters do a very good job of trapping fine particulate generated during the manufacturing process.   Consider also installing sink traps for both sludge and diamonds.
