Scotgold have recently made the first pour of Scottish Gold from the Cononish Gold Mine in Tyndrum, Scotland. 12 gold rounds with a fineness of 999.9 have been created, ten of which will be sold to the public at auction.
The Edinburgh Assay Office have designed a chain of custody that will assure the provenance of the first Scottish gold poured on site at the mine. The first batch poured was tested for purity by the Edinburgh Assay Office on the 25th of October, in preparation for batch refining. The Assay Office has meticulously recorded each batch of poured gold maintains a rigorous chain of custody to assure the provenance of the finished precious metal product. Going forward, the Assay Office aims to guarantee that any gold product stamped with the Scottish Gold ‘Stag’s Head’ mark is made with authentic Scottish gold mined from Cononish mine by Scotgold Resources Ltd.
