London, 30 April 2012 – GoldMoney, one of the world’s largest providers of physical bullion for retail and corporate investors, today launches the GoldMoney Laboratory – an innovative educational project to promote awareness of precious metals manufacturing and quality testing. The Laboratory, which can be accessed at www.goldmoney.com/laboratory, complements the company’s existing educational activities, GoldMoney Research and GoldMoney Foundation. Besides regular reports on industry news, educational videos and scientific research papers will be published in this new section of GoldMoney’s website.
With the GoldMoney Laboratory the company establishes a global forum for retail investors to enhance their knowledge about quality standards and purity testing of gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
As part of the GoldMoney Standard, the company already uses ultrasound technology to check the quality of customers’ precious metals. All gold bars are scanned to ensure they are free of foreign materials or defects. If the scan is not clear, the bar is melted down, assessed and recast at GoldMoney’s expense. Bullion bars that adhere to the GoldMoney Standard attain the recognised Digital Hallmark™ seal of approval.
GoldMoney spokesperson Alex Preukschat comments: “Quality and security of precious metals have the highest priority at GoldMoney and we always strive to offer the best service and most transparent information to our customers. By illustrating the value chain of precious metals processing, from mining, refining and chemical analysis, to casting of gold and silver bars, our Laboratory offers profound information and supports customers and visitors in making decisions regarding their investment in physical metals."
