Metal Concentrators is a pioneer in the field of refining, manufacturing and supplying Precious Metals in South Africa. The company has earned a reputation for being an industry trendsetter giving technical support to South African Jewelry manufacturers. Established in 1989, Metal Concentrators has refineries in Johannesburg and Cape Town and a satellite branch in Durban. It also has a team of representatives who serve the South African Precious Metals industry.
Metal Concentrators was the first company to receive permission from the South African Diamond and Jewelry Regulator and the South African Reserve Bank to produce and sell minted Gold, Silver and Platinum bars. The Company’s operation is fully compliant with the provisions of the Mining Charter and was the first South African company to receive dual certification (Chain of Custody and Code of Practice Certificates attached) from the Responsible Jewelry Council in London. This certification acknowledges high levels of integrity in Gold trading. Metal Concentrators was also the first company in South Africa to formulate and produce nickel-free alloys in compliance with the EU Nickel Release Standard.
Metal Concentrators has made a substantial contribution to the growth of the South African jewelry industry by supporting the goals of the Jewelry Manufacturers Association. The Platinum Design Competition, known as "PlatAfrica", was initiated by the Company together with Anglo Platinum to further that goal.
Today Metal Concentrators is focusing on another goal: The Evolution of African Wealth. To create nation building Precious Metal products accessible to all South Africans. To expand South Africa’s Precious Metal footprint in the rest of the world through the world class manufacturing of bullion and heritage products which represent South Africa with dignity and respect. As the only South African refinery to buy back its own products in South Africa, the risk to the end consumer is radically diminished. The new investor who wants to start investing in Precious Metals can trade fearlessly with a company who understands the need to expand and store wealth by buying back at any time their own Precious Metal products at market related rates.
