Precious Metal Refining

Ownership delivers on over three decades of refining expertise. M&K distinguishes itself with the use of a chemical-based refining process that maximizes the recovery of precious metal scrap materials. Our state-of-the-art North Andover, MA headquarters is certified by a Massachusetts DEP B4 Level III Hazardous Waste Recycling Permit. “Green” chemical processing of gold, silver, and platinum group metals is recovered from encapsulated, clad, and plated material. A cyanide strip method is employed for gold-plated scrap products, with recovery and treatment of solutions also performed. Our processes result in zero discharge, emissions-free, efficient and “clean” recovery, along with quicker turnaround.
