GATA | THE GATA DISPATCH -September 23, 2012-.: Safeguards can spot fake gold bars

Safeguards can spot fake gold bars

2:15p ET Sunday, September 23, 2012

With gold-plated tungsten bars making another appearance this week, (http://www.gata.org/node/11767), it's time to call attention again to the safeguards used by the best gold dealers to avoid getting cheated and to avoid cheating their customers.

In March the Perth Mint's Bron Suchecki wrote about these safeguards, particularly ultrasonic testing, in an essay GATA reported about:

http://gata.org/node/11177

Suchecki's essay remains posted at the Perth Mint's Internet site here:

GoldMoney's standard includes ultrasonic testing, which is described in both text and a video here:

Jim Sinclair notes that stories about fake bars could be used as disinformation to discourage gold investors. All the more reason to refuse to be discouraged and to be informed about your vendor.
