Setting up WikiProject Silverware?[edit]

Would anyone be interested in helping to set up a WikiProject Silverware? I'm interested in salvers, coffee pots, jugs, candlesticks, famous silversmiths, different styles, etc. Thanks. Girlwithgreeneyes (talk) 11:35, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Proposing a merger[edit]

I would like to propose that Assayer be merged into Metallurgical assay. Information in the former is scarce and, if expanded, would likely just mirror that of the latter.-RHM22 (talk) 23:55, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Having received no objections, the former is now a redirect to the latter. I went over both articles and found no unique information in Assayer, so I simply changed it to a redirect.-RHM22 (talk) 02:32, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Fire assay totally destructive?[edit]

Fire assay is not totally destructive as the article claims. In the assaying of gold ores, the ore itself is destroyed, but when a gravimetric finish is used, the gold is recoverable. If a spectroscopic finish is used, the gold content of the aspirated solution is lost, but the rest can be easily recovered. The silver precipitates from the solution upon addition of HCl, so that metal can be easily recovered too. In the assaying of bullion, the gold and silver is likewise recovered.
