Henan Jinli Gold and Lead Co., Ltd - added to the LBMA’s Silver Good Delivery List

Monday, October 14, 2013

The silver refinery of Henan Jinli Gold and Lead Co., Ltd (Henan Jinli) of China has been
added to the LBMA’s Good Delivery List for silver with effect from 14th October, 2013.

Henan Jinli has satisfied the LBMA as to its ownership, history, production capability and
financial standing.  It has also passed the LBMA’s exhaustive testing procedures, under which its
silver bars were examined and assayed by independent referees, and its own assaying capabilities
were tested.

Henan Jinli is located in Jiyuan City, Henan Province.  Its primary sources of silver feedstocks
are anode slimes recovered from its lead electrolysis production system. Henan Jinli’s refined
silver output is mainly in the form of bars for investment, jewellery or other industrial purposes.


The London Good Delivery List of Acceptable Refiners of gold and silver is maintained by the LBMA,
by whom it is copyrighted.  It lists those refineries whose gold and silver bars have been found,
when originally tested, to meet the required standard for acceptability in the London bullion
market. The List now includes 65 gold and 77 silver refiners. China has 18 accredited Good Delivery
silver refiners making it the country with the highest concentration worldwide.
