Metallix Refining Opens Precious Metals Lab in Greenville, North Carolina

Metallix Refining, Inc., a leader and innovator in the precious metals recycling industry, opened its new state-of-the-art, precious metals analysis laboratory in Greenville, North Carolina.

An ISO 9001:2015 certified company, Metallix ensures that scrap precious metals are processed carefully, with strict attention to environmental, health, and safety regulations. Metallix purchases, recycles, and refines gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and rhodium, serving businesses in a variety of industries around the globe.

According to company officials, “the 4,000-square foot facility secures the company's place among the nation's top precious metal recycling companies, setting the stage for continued growth and matchless performance.”

"We are extremely pleased that after years of meticulous research, design, and implementation, we are now analyzing precious metal-bearing materials in our cutting-edge facility – the scope of which will enhance our value to our customers, suppliers, and business partners," says Maria Piastre, Metallix President.

Three times the size of Metallix's former lab, the new environment features upgraded balances as well as new cupellation furnaces for fire assay testing, XRF equipment for preliminary analysis, and ICP instruments. All equipment runs in a humidity- and temperature-controlled climate, ensuring optimal performance.

The lab also provides a superior level of safety and comfort for Metallix's lab employees, officials SAID. Extremely efficient filtration and ventilation systems keep employees safe from contaminants, fumes, and dust, and ensures emissions entering the atmosphere are similarly clean.

The company operates two processing and recycling facilities in North Carolina, with executive offices in both Florida and New Jersey.
