What We Refine

2 What We Refine

Gold, silver and PGM material are refined in our plants. The group refineries process different types of metal-bearing material such as doré from our mining partners, scrap material from the secondary jewellery market, investment bars and spent industrial material. Our modern facilities have the technology to refine gold and silver up to '999.99' (five-nines) purity to meet the technical and quality requirements of our customers, especially in the electronics and fine jewellery sectors.

The refineries’ specialised PGM laboratories can treat high-grade and low-grade platinum, palladium and rhodium in the form of residues, spent industrial equipment and scrap.

Assaying

Both refineries operate state-of-the-art assay laboratories to provide highest quality and reliable assays. The comprehensive range of services include fire, spectrometric, ICP, X-ray and chemical assays. All material arriving at the refineries, whether doré or scrap, is melted and sampled. Both assay laboratories are certified as conforming to the general competency requirements to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling, of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO / IEC '17025 : 2005' Accredited).

As an external affirmation of our high standards, PAMP is one of only three 'Approved Good Delivery Referees' of both the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and London Platinum and Palladium Market (LPPM), responsible for the testing of samples, the provision of reference samples and other functions in support of the Good Delivery system.
