Precious metal refining or Metallurgy is the process of purifying an impure material into a pure one. 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.
While refining is predominately used for Lead and Copper, products such as Silver and Gold are also purified in this way.
During these uncertain economic times investors have fallen back to the more stable commodities market, with precious metal prices (Gold and Silver in particular) rocketing as a result.


There are many places within a manufacturing procedure that may hide precious metal scraps. For example buffing, sanding or grinding of precious metals can cause scrap to be in the form of dust. This dust should be collected as it can often be found to be of high purity.
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.
As experts in precious metal refining All Waste Matters can arrange for one of our highly skilled members of staff to visit your site and help to identify processes in your manufacturing procedures which could be producing valuable scrap precious metal.
