The silver refinery of Hunan Huaxin Nonferrous Metals Co., Ltd (Hunan Huaxin) of China has been added to the LBMA’s Good Delivery List for silver with effect from 30th June, 2014.
Hunan Huaxin 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.
Hunan Huaxin is located in Zixing City, Hunan Province. Its primary source of silver feedstock is anode slime recovered from its lead electrolysis production system. Hunan Huaxin’s refined silver output is mainly in the form of silver bars.
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 71 gold and 79 silver refiners.
