Try at Binondo Jewelry shops. If you know any one who can speak Cantonese or Mandarin, bring him along, that is an added assurance. Just a suggestion.

That's correct! I've used their assay services before and McPhar can assay ANY metal there.

thanks i appreciate it i think i might try Philtech first since its american owned and they buy gold, then McPhar if need be. How much does it cost to assay gold or other precious metals and how long does it take (or does that depend on method used).

Good luck..

McPhar charges per each metal you want them to identify. So if you just want to identify only the GOLD content, then they will charge less fees for that. I think around P2,500 or so and it takes a couple days (Unless you want express assay then that's double the price and takes only one day).
