Gold Refinery Supplies - The Phoenix Smelting and Refining Company.

I compiled these lists at Modesto, CA and Hong Kong, China.
I have included all of the listed items even though there are
repeated items. This may not be all that you will want or need
and I am not saying by any means that it is totally necessary or
that you purchase all or any of it for that matter. It's here to help you 
make important decisions and to jog your mind and spark your
imagination for how you may want build out your operation.
We ran a fairly small operation if you compare it to well
established refineries. It seemed huge to me pouring 
3000 ounces a day but that's pocket change for the big operations.

1 - Shot Tank Stainless Steel - I haven't found one online and so you might want to go to your local welding shop and have one welded out of 1/8" or thicker sheet 316 stainless steel standing about 45" Tall and about 8"X 8" Wide. Doesn't have to be Stainless for granulating to refine but if you're creating casting grain you should build it from stainless to eliminate contamination.
