  • Platinum Refineries is a full service refiner, assayer, smelter and broker of all precious metals. Industrial Platinum, Medical Platinum, Jewelry Platinum, Rhodium, Palladium, Gold and Silver assaying and refining is what we specialize in.
  • Platinum Refineries provide customers with a state-of-the-art laboratory, utilizing the most advanced induction and chemical techniques to extract every grain of precious metals contained in your Platinum, Rhodium, Palladium, Gold and Silver scrap.
  • Platinum Refineries never charge refining fees, and with a variety of settlement options, fast turn-around time, and our precise and accurate assays our services are unparalleled in the industry.
  • Platinum (Pt) is a malleable, silvery white, noble metal widely but sparingly distributed over the earth’s crust. It is found mainly as the isotopes with atomic weights of 194, 195 and 196, with a maximum oxidation state of +6, the oxidation states of +2 and +4 being the most stable.The metal does not corrode in air at any temperature.
  • The mining of platinum ores is similar to gold mining. This enables a progressive method of mining - the reef is drilled and blasted to advance the face, support being installed for local control of the hanging wall. As in gold mines, platinum mining is incorporating the increased use of mechanisation and trackless-mining methods in stopes little more than one metre high.
  • Platinum mining, however, differs from gold mining in several ways. Unlike gold reefs, which are sedimentary deposits resulting from the settling of granular particles on the bed of an inland lake and subjected to great pressure, platinum reefs are igneous rocks.
  • The demand for platinum group metals(PGMs) has therefore increased exponentially and now some seven million ounces of platinum and 6.5 million ounces of palladium are used annually, of which 40% of platinum and 65% of palladium are used in catalysts.This growing demand has encouraged an exploration boom for PGMs, which are relatively rare in the geological record.
