Our Process

Wet Chemical

Metallix Refining’s wet chemical department processes cyanide and acid solutions that contain precious metals.


In our high grade refining department, we use specific acid formulations to dissolve, separate, precipitate and purify gold, silver and platinum group metals (PGMs). Our wet chemical for precious metal recovery process utilizes glass lined tanks ranging in capacity from 50 to 750 gallons. This size range properly accommodates the wide variety and volume of precious metal bearing material that we purchase.

Additionally, our state-of-the-art scrubbers clean the gasses emitted during the refining process. Learn more about our commitment to Environmental Health and Safety.


We purchase precious metal bearing cyanide solutions containing gold and silver. The wet chemical process for precious metal are recovered electrolytically onto metal cathodes or through precipitation.
