Borax Gold Refining

In gold refinement Dehybor anhydrous borax is used in flux formulations to dissolve metal oxides and as a flux in gold assaying The addition of Dehybor to the smelt is generally 1050 of total smelt weight depending on the process The borax contribution to flux composition can be up to 60 of total flux weight but is typically around 3040
