LBMA and COMEX good delivery refiner of responsible gold and silver

    About Us

    We are proud to announce that, effective June 2015, OPM Metals is called Elemetal Refining.

    Since 1974, Elemetal Refining has been committed to offering the best rates and the most accurate and transparent assays. Our capacity to refine and evaluate large volumes of precious metals, using the most technologically advanced processes, has kept us at the forefront of the industrial refining market for decades.

    Elemetal Refining sets itself apart from others in the industry by using state-of-the-art refining techniques. We refine scrap metals from a variety of sources to 99.99% pure gold and 99.90% pure silver. We upgrade impure precious metals to fine products through a host of unique processes. Elemetal Refining developed many of its modern refining practices and perfected in-house its pyro-metallurgical, mechanical, and chemical-refining circuit.

    Elemetal Refining is the only refiner in the world with a Brinks vaulting service inside its refinery. The vault, independently operated by Brinks, gives Elemetal Refining clients the option to store materials within the Brinks network, and thus reduce delays and transportation costs.


    Our state-of-the-art 168,000 square foot facility, located in Ohio, is designed to produce the highest-quality gold and silver products from recycled and natural sources. This facility is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified. In addition to LBMA, COMEX, and ISO, we are proud to have third-party audited certifications for Responsible Source Gold and Silver, Recycled Gold and Silver, and Conflict-Free gold. Elemetal Refining is committed to caring for its employees, neighbors, local utilities, and the environment.
