    The process is complete when purple fumes of gold chloride start to form, usually when the gold content reaches a purity of 99.6 to 99.7 percent. Any PGMs present are not removed, and further refining is necessary if pure gold is required. The typical gold purity achieved by this process is 99.5 percent, with silver as the main impurity.

    Borax occurs in arid regions, forming from evaporation of saline lakes. Borax is also synthetically formed as a by-product of mining operations of borate deposits, and most of the specimens from the famous mine at Boron, California, are formed this way. The first Borax specimens came several dry lake deposits in Tibet. They were shipped in large quantities by ancient caravans for profit.
