C. Hafner GmbH + Co. KG - added to the LBMA’s Gold Good Delivery List

Friday, March 08, 2013

The gold refinery of C. Hafner GmbH + Co. KG (C. Hafner) of Germany has been added
to the LBMA’s Good Delivery List for gold with effect from 8th March, 2013.


C. Hafner 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 gold bars
were examined and assayed by independent referees, and its own assaying capabilities were tested.


C. Hafner is located in Pforzheim.  Its primary sources of feedstock are scrap materials sourced
from industries such as the dental and jewellery sectors.  C. Hafner’s refined gold output is in
the form of large bars for investment purposes, as well as high quality products for a range of
industries such as jewellery and watch manufacturers, dental laboratories and practitioners.


Background

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 64 gold and 73 silver refiners.
