Following extensive testing and evaluation in a pilot plant, a large commercial pre-production noble metals refinery utilising a recently developed solvent extraction process has been constructed and is currently undergoing commissioning trials. Built with due regard to the needs of the users of the platinum metals, to the health and safety of the operators and to the protection of the environment, the capacity of the new refinery indicates confidence in the long term demand for the platinum metals.
