Hi Christine, thanks for the reply concerning a recycled metal mixture. I am on your mailing list for your newsletter and look forward to your article. I have not checked Rio yet for their mixture, but presently purchase my silver and gold from Hoover & Strong. I am also looking forward to the upcoming availability of fairtrade gold.

Hi Christine,

I am looking for a source for a recycled/reclaimed metal mixture for casting. A mix Of Copper, Zinc, Silver and Brass or something similar. Do you know where I should start looking?

Thanks!
