Featured Invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase 2009

 UFO Micro Furnace is the world’s smallest, lightest, most portable, easiest to use and most affordable furnace for performing assays of precious metal ore.  It is the only one that can be taken to the mine site, and is so simple to use that a trip to the assay office in town is no longer necessary.  UFO stands for Unbelievable Firing Object.


“We are especially proud of the fact that one of our customers used our furnace to discover a platinum deposit here in Colorado, thus contributing to the state’s economy, and lessening our dependence on foreign sources.  Few inventions can claim such a distinction.”

What you  receive with the UFO Micro Furnace is the docking station, 4 1.5 inch cupels, 1 base peice, 1 top, 1 pair of tongs, 1 torch with a four foot hose and swirl flame tip, and 4 ounces of Amalgamite. You will also recieve the new instructional cd. This is what you need to get started.

UFO 11

With this unit, you can easily melt gold, platinum and silver… This unit also purifies the precious metals more each time you process it.
There is no need for MAPP gas, as plain old propane does the trick.

For the first time ever, the prospector or miner can do on-the-spot assays, at the mine site or clean up concentrates at the river’s edge, and go home with sellable gold in their hand.

This unit will all fit in a backpack, along with two or three bottles of propane and you still have room for your lunch. The furnace itself will fit right in your shirt pocket. This “little hottie” will easily melt gold, silver and platinum, (with Amalgamite).
