Global refiner of choice
We can process more than 800 tonnes of gold and 1000 tonnes of silver per annum. Our intake each year equates to almost 75% of Australia’s newly mined gold and close to 10% of world gold.
Located on Australia’s west coast in Western Australia, one of the world’s least impacted regions during COVID-19, we have continued safe operations throughout the pandemic.
