Precious Metal Refiners - AWA

AWA Refiners chemically refine and melt a variety of precious metals. We accept all physical grades and forms, which are then dealt with in our on site laboratory. As one of the leading precious metal refiners, we specialise in working with gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium and ruthenium.

Precious metals are chemically refined and melting operations are performed in house, enabling us to process all precious metals and their complex alloys.

With over 20 years of trading, AWA Refiners can provide the highest quality service for the refining of precious metals.

Buyers Of High Value Metals

We also purchase and process Tin Alloys (including pewters, solders, joints, drosses, pastes, whitemetals and pure tin) and have a high value metal department trading in Tungsten, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Nickel, Titanium, Tantalum, Indium and their alloys. We also accept Mercury.

Any materials classified as hazardous must have the appropriate paperwork, which our buying department can arrange and advise on. We are fully registered with the Environment Agency for hazardous waste (registration number AAT109).

How We Operate

There is a simple, four-stage process in place that we use for the purchase of precious metals:

  1. Samples are welcomed from new and existing suppliers, to enable prior valuation.
  2. We will collect all precious metal-bearing materials for free, nationwide.
  3. Our team of laboratory technicians will then perform all analytical requirements.
  4. Payments will then be made via cheque, bank transfer or toll refining service.

Toll refining is the service of reclaiming precious metals from a material set against a processing cost. This form of precious metal refinement involves weighing, homogenising, sampling and assaying the object to clarify its contents. Toll refining represents the best chance of monetary return for the customer, and is a service that AWA Refiners is delighted to offer.

If you are considering selling a precious metal-containing material, and would like a valuation, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the AWA team. Don't forget that in addition to being precious metal refiners, we are also a leading processor of scrap computer boards.
