Sampling at Sabin Metal Corporation

Received customer materials are processed as needed to remove contamination and homogenized. Appropriate sampling is conducted to obtain representative samples for Sabin, customer, umpire and reserve.

Assay Tested at Separate Labs

Samples are analyzed by Sabin and the customer (if client wishes to do so).

Assay Exchange

Once the Sabin lab and the customer’s lab are ready, a simultaneous exchange of assay results takes place.

If the two assays differ by amounts equal to or less than the agreed tolerance (or “splitting limit”) set forth with the contract, the basis for the final settlement shall be the average of the two assays.

Potential Umpire

If the two assays differ by more than the “splitting limit”, the umpire sample is sent to a mutually agreed third-party lab for analysis.

Final Settlement

When the umpire analysis has been completed, the basis for the final settlement shall be determined by the procedure indicated below.

Delivery (Physical/Electronic Transfer)

A. Sabin can arrange for the physical return or an electronic transfer of the accountable metals. Depending upon the customer’s chosen location for physical delivery, transportation charges may apply.

B. Sell the accountable metals to Sabin Metal Corporation. Metal pricing will be determined on a mutually agreed date after the settlement is finalized.

C. Sabin can hold the accountable metals balance in the client’s designated metal pool account.
