Republic Metals Corporation added to the LBMA’s Good Delivery Gold List

Monday, February 17, 2014

The precious metals refinery of Republic Metals Corporation (Re public) of United States
of America has been added to the LBMA’s Good Delivery List for gold with effect from
17th  February, 2014.

Republic  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.

Republic  is located in Miami.  Its primary sources of feedstock are mined material as well as
scrap materials sourced from the jewellery, dental and pawn sectors.  Republic’s refined gold
output is mainly  in the form of cast bars.

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 68 gold and 78 silver refiners.

About the London Bullion Market Association

counter market for gold and silver bullion.   The LBMA undertakes many activities on behalf of its
members, including  the setting of good delivery and refining standards, the organisation of
