At P3Mrefining.com you can sell your unwanted or broken gold, silver and platinum jewellery and coins for top dollar.

Your Gold Buyer, P3M Refining buys pretty much anything with a significant gold, silver or platinum content such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, watches, coins, bars, dental gold and other precious metals containing items.

We will beat any other online gold buyer:

We pay top dollar for your precious metals containing material. As a part of our 100% satisfaction guarantee we will beat any other online silver, platinum or gold buyers offer for your jewellery, coins or scrap metal in the unlikely event that somebody will offer you a higher payout.

You will see that a lot of our competitors only pay a fraction of your metals value, if you add up the numbers and to hide the fact, many of them do not even give you any up to date pricing until you have actually send your material in and would have to go to some hassle to get it back if you do not like their payout.

We put transparency and customer satisfaction first and therefore offer you a Payment Estimator that will give you a close estimation of what your payout is going to be - based on live precious metals market values. The only thing you need to know is the karat / precious metal content of your coins, jewellery, dental gold or scrap metal and the weight - our estimator will do the rest. For detailed instructions on how to prepare your gold, platinum and silver items for shipping & how to use the Payment Estimator please refer to our "How it works" section.

At P3M Refining our main goal is to have satisfied, repeat customers - not one time deals taking advantage of customers that will never come back. We want to set us apart from the other known gold buyers and their bad reputation.

Doing business with us is easy. Get an online estimation of what your jewellery, scrap gold, silver & platinum is worth, send the material to us for testing or order in an express return envelope for your material (we pay for shipping on lots over 1 oz gold content). Shipment via express post usually takes 1 - 2 days, then we will weigh and test your gold, platinum and silver materials within one day, provide you with a quote the same day and pay you the next business day. That means the money can be in your bank account as fast as 3-4 business days from the time you send the material (using email-money transfer for fastest payment).

Special pricing for businesses and large volumes!

Got a large volume (> 5 oz) or a continuous supply (e.g. you operate a pawn shop, manufacturing business, jewellery store,...) and want special pricing?

No problem!

Give us a call at (NEW) PHONE# COMING UP to speak directly to our sales team or send an email to . Depending on your volume we may even offer interest free pre-payment at the time we receive the material - this gives you the advantage to be able to go out and by more material from your clients right away.

"Special" precious metals bearing materials (Filings, dust, ash, wipes, sponges & others)

We process everything that contains precious metals, that being the filings from a jeweller, crude gold dust from a mine, precious metals impregnated sponges and wipes from plating processes, ion exchange resins, slag, X-ray films and many more.

Bottom line: If it has precious metals in it, we will refine it.

Assaying services:

Not sure how much value your material truly holds? We can determine the (precious) metal content of your materials. To learn more about this service and pricing, give us a call at (NEW) PHONE# COMING UP or send an email to .

We offer 3 types of assays for precious metals, for a brief description of each see below:

Fire assay:  

Available for Gold and Silver concentrations. Useful for higher (< 5 %) gold or silver contents. The material gets molten into a bar, a sample is drilled from the bar. The turnings from the sample get molten together with lead and silver on a so called cupel that absorbs the oxides formed from the less noble metals (such as Copper, Nickel, Zinc, etc.) and leaves a bead of gold and silver behind. After selective dissolution in acid the gold residue is dried and weighed on a high precision scale to determine the final gold / silver content.

Turnaround time is 2-3 business days.

ICP:

Available for 32 elements, including copper, silver, gold, platinum, palladium & rhodium.
Depending on sample type and size, the material might be reduced in size through various mills and sample dividers. Following this procedure the sample is dissolved in acid and the solution is run through our ICP spectrometer. From the metal concentration in solution we can calculate the metal content of your sample.
This is a very precise method giving you a whole range of information about your sample and is very useful when you expect more than 1 valuable metal in your sample (e.g. you have a platinum-gold alloy).

Turnaround time is 3-4 business days.

XRF:

Available for 15 elements, including copper, silver, gold, platinum, palladium & rhodium.
This is a very quick and accurate method (results available within 1 minute), provided the sample is homogeneous. The spectrometer sends X-rays into the sample exciting the material so it fluoresces back into the detector. From the fluorescence spectrum the instrument can calculate the metal concentrations in the sample. The drawback is that X-rays only penetrate the first few μm of the sample, so if a material is inhomogeneous (e.g. plated), the surface has to be filed/sanded so the core of the material is exposed, otherwise the reading is not accurate.

Results are available on the spot.

For Honeycomb from catalytic converters we offer ICP analysis:
