MJSA Press Publishes Guide to Maximizing Refining Returns

(PRESS RELEASE) MJSA Press has published a new digital book, A Refined Approach: Tips for Capturing Precious Metals, Choosing a Refiner, and Maximizing Returns, a comprehensive guide to managing metals and ensuring profits aren’t being thrown away (literally).

The book covers everything from managing inventory to capturing all types of metal waste — hard scrap, sweeps, sludge, solutions — and preparing a lot for refining. It also offers guidance on how to choose and work with a refiner, and provides an overview of what the actual sampling and assaying processes entail.

A Refined Approach is available as a Kindle e-book through Amazon, and as a downloadable PDF that can be purchased through MJSA. The standard price for both versions is $9.99, although MJSA members can download or request the PDF free of charge as part of their membership benefits. To learn more, go to

The Prime Sponsors of A Refined Approach are David H. Fell & Company, Gannon & Scott, Umicore Precious Metals, and United Precious Metal Refining.

Additional support was provided by Geib Refining Corp., Gemological Institute of America, and Hoover & Strong.




Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
