Real gold sellers do not use the Internet to send FCO's, SKR's etc. or for that matter any email documentation in view of Internet fraud. It is either faxed or sent by courier.
Gold obtained from the ground in any form is never in pure form. Gold purity can be as low at 50% or up to 96% gold. Most small gold pieces contain some silver and other precious metals.
Gold will also contain some worthless material e.g. dirt which will be burnt off during refining.
A sale of 100 tons of gold is considered a relatively large sale.

The Internet gold bullion market is infested with criminal activity. It is so corrupted by criminal elements, incompetent agents/mandates or fakers that almost ALL offers appearing on the Internet are fraudulent.
All offers that include DISCOUNT for gold bullion can be immediately excluded as FAKE.
Offers referring to LME (London Metals Exchange) will be fake. Note: The LME has never dealt in gold and does not set the price of gold.
If you receive such an offer with discount, ask yourself this question. If I owned gold bullion and I could get 2nd London Price for my gold in London, would I sell it at a discount? Answer NO!.
Offers with discount on GLD gold, can ALL be deleted immediately because they WILL be fake.
All offers that mention 1,000mt - 5,000mt or 10,000mt etc. are completely FAKE, especially if they mention discount. Such amounts of gold simply do NOT exist for sale.
Offers from Africa are close to 100% fake. Such countries as Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, Burkino Faso, Benin, Cote d'Ivoire, ALL suffer from organised criminal gangs who target the Internet with fraudulent offers, particularly for gold.
In general you will be offered gold dust at around US$18,000 per kg. although the real price is around US$30,000 per kg. That price is designed to pique interest so the 'target' thinks they can make a fast dollar. You will never need to pay for the gold until it has been delivered, refined and then you have 72 hours etc. to pay for the gold.
HOWEVER to get the gold out of the country YOU must pay costs to refine, along with other government charges, including TAX. These costs are NOT legitimate. If you pay this you will never see your money again. This is THE SCAM.
Under NO circumstances should you pay ANY funds up front for any reason whatsoever.
It should be understood that criminal gangs have rows and rows of computers sending out emails to unsuspecting people on a daily basis.
Amazingly, there are enough stupid people out there who WILL accept an email offer and actually believe it, and they WILL send money.
