This is a very local specific issue.  And while it does depend on the assay of your concentrate, location is also very important.  This relates to where you will have to ship your concentrates for further processing, the capacity of the processor and of course the nature and assay of your concentrate. 

A very rough guide, for small operations in remote localities, has been that final recovery will be between 30% to 50% of the values with you receiving about 30% to 50% of the value of the RECOVERD values.
