Winter Olympics 2018: How much is a gold medal worth? What about silver and bronze?

February 18, 2018 Posted by admin

Scrap metal value

The value of a gold medal can simply be reduced to its worth as scrap, which shows the price of the metal when it is melted down.

Gold medals do vary in size – with London’s games being the largest at between 375 and 400 grams, but on the whole have average at 176.5 grams in weight.

Gold medals are also not made entirely from gold – only about 6g of each medallion is made from 24-karat gold and the rest is stirling silver.

This means in today’s values, the average gold medal from PyeongChang would be worth about $577 (£415).

Silver medals, which are solid, would be worth about $320, while a bronze medal – made of a copper alloy – is worth only $3.50.

Criminal case filed against embattled mortuary owner, employees

February 16, 2018 Posted by admin

SOUTH SALT LAKE — Criminal charges were filed Wednesday against the owner of an embattled mortuary accused of allowing unlicensed employees to embalm and cremate remains.

Tanner Jay Carver, 34, of Spanish Fork, and Shane Adam Westmoreland, 41, of Mapleton, are each charged in 3rd District Court with seven counts of unlawful and unprofessional conduct and 10 counts of unlawful preparing of a dead body for disposition without a license. All are class A misdemeanors.

Carver is the principal owner of Carver Mortuary, 847 W. 2500 South, and Westmoreland is the manager, according to court records.

In addition, Michael Deacon Jones, 39, of Salt Lake City, was charged Wednesday with removal of items from human remains; and 20 counts of unlawful preparing of a dead body for disposition without a license, all class A misdemeanors.

Beau Hintze, 37, of Eagle Mountain, was charged with three counts of unlawful and unprofessional conduct, a class A misdemeanor.

Hintze, whose professional license expired in 2015, “performed 17 embalming and sew-ups” between October 2016 and November 2017, according to charging documents.

Jones, whose professional license expired in 2013, “performed over 300 embalming procedures and cremations” during the same time period, the charges state.

Jones is also accused of selling scrap gold — including “dental gold” — to a local precious metals refinery for $1,000, according to the court documents. The investigator in the case noted in the charges that the metal “looks like intact crowns that have been removed from a person’s mouth.”

Funeral home suspended after reports of mixing remains, stealing jewelry

State officials suspended the license of a mortuary in South Salt Lake after reports of employees stealing jewelry from bodies, conducting cremations without identification and leaving bodies outside refrigerators.

Among the other allegations in the charging documents:

• A former employee told investigators that “unidentified bodies were disposed of without proper licensing, death certificates or permits.”

• At least four employees said they were asked by either Westmoreland or Jones to conduct cremations, even though they were hired for such jobs as transporting bodies and cleaning the office and were not licensed to do cremations. One of those employees estimated he ended up doing more than 200 cremations.

• Another employee who was hired to do body transports said “he was taught on his first day” on the job how to do cremations.”

In November, the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing announced an agreement with Carver Mortuary in which the mortuary neither admitted nor denied the allegations against it, but acknowledged the division had evidence to support its findings, according to an order filed in the division’s review.

Carver Mortuary’s license was placed on probation for five years under the deal, and it agreed to pay $10,000 of a $50,000 fine, according to the order.

At the time of the order, Carver Mortuary did not dispute allegations that it had permitted unlicensed employees to embalm and cremate remains; placed infant remains in cremation receptacles meant for adults; failed to clean out cremation receptacles, allowing cremations to be commingled or discarded; and overfilled a refrigerator at the mortuary, allowing unembalmed bodies to remain outside a refrigerator for more than a day.

Carver, however, denied allegations that employees had pocketed jewelry and sold gold and precious metals for profits, stating at the time, “That did not happen.”
