All Waste Matters offer specialist precious metal refining services to leading companies in a number of industry sectors.
Precious metal refining or Metallurgy is the process of purifying an impure material into a pure metal. Precious metal refining is very different from smelting because it does not involve a core chemical change of the raw material. In refining, the final material is always chemically identical to the original material but in a purer form.
Services we offer:

  • Free Assay Service

    Send your material into us for a free assay. We’ll make an offer based upon the results. If you’re happy great. If not we’ll return it the very same day. NB This may not be possible for all materials so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • Free Collection Service

    We offer a free collection service anywhere in the country.

  • Over 50 Years Experience

    We’ll use all of our know how and specialist techniques to ensure we return the maximum value of your material.

Selling Gold? By smelting we can turn your unwanted Gold into molten metal and eventually gold bullion.

How to refine metal

Our refining processes convert a small amount of molten metal into gold bullion bars.

Which Precious Metals can be refined?

While refining is predominately used for Lead and Copper, precious metal refining from products such as Silver and Gold are also purified in this way.

We are both silver refiners and gold refiners and precious metals recovered by All Waste Matters are usually done so using the Phyrolysis method which solidifies noble-metalliferous metals, melting them to become cider and then pouring which finally separates the precious metals.

During these uncertain economic times investors have fallen back to the more stable metals market, with precious metal prices (Gold and Silver price in particular) rocketing as a result.

It is also important for manufacturers to be aware of procedures in their processes which may generate precious metal scrap suitable for recycling. By using All Waste Matters as your precious metal refiner you may be able to turn these seemingly insignificant scraps into profit for your company.
