About Rand Refinery

Silver Rand Refinary

It was in 1920 that Rand Refinery was officially registered (refining operations only commenced late in 1921) with start-up capital of £50,000 and shares split between the gold-mining companies that were members of the Chamber of Mines (now the Minerals Council of South Africa).


Today, it continues operation as an integrated, single-site precious metals smelting and refining complex. Rand Refinery is one of five LBMA accredited referees in the world.


Since 1920, Rand Refinery’s technological pioneering spirit has enabled it to transform into a global presence with a wide range of products and services. In the decades that followed, it consistently and continuously expanded its product portfolio and technical know-how.
