Refining Precious Metals




melting gold

PAMP Suisse refines Gold, Silver and Platinum Group Metals (PMGs) from mines, recycling industries and jewelers.

Pamp refines gold and silver using Electrolytic anode. 

Electrolytic anode - ore is converted into anodes that are then positioned in electrolytic cells where the gold or silver is separated from other elements.

The electrolytic treatment results in the deposits of gold or silver, on a cathode, in purities ranging between .9999 to .99999.

Once the gold or silver's purity has been determined, the precious metals are manufactured into a variety of different products.

This page from GoldAvenue (another MKS company) describes in more
detail the Electrolysis process.


For refining Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), PAMP Suisse uses a complex chemical process.

PAMP
Precious Metals Bullion Bars




PAMP Suisse provides investors with a complete range of precious metals bars in almost any shape, weights or size.

PAMP's refinery produces two types bullion bars, Cast & Minted Bars.

Poured or Cast Bullion Bars - are produced by pouring molten precious metal directly into a mold. 

Markings are usually stamped on the bar using a hammer or a press. 

The surface of the bar can be uneven and have some small pits and grooves.

In addition, company markings on cast bars will look depressed or "sunken," into the bar

Minted Bullion Bars - are cut from a cast bar that has been rolled to a uniform thickness.

The cutting is done with a die to create blanks that have a specified dimension and weight.

All the surfaces are smooth and even. 

Markings are stamped onto the bar using a minting press.  In addition, company markings on minted bars will be "raised" due to this process.

certiPAMP




Many of PAMP's minted bullion bars are sold, sealed inside a certiPAMP assay card. 

bullion bar pamp

These bars are never touched by human hands.

The plastic assay cards pictured on this page are tamper proof and come directly from the refiner.

Each certiPAMP sealed precious metal bar is factory-sealed and bears the assayer's signature, the bar's serial number and the bar's purity and weight.

This high standard in tamper resistance assures quality and authenticity and has made PAMP Suisse, the Worlds Largest Manufacturer of "Minted" Bullion bars.

PAMP
Serial Numbers




As stated on the Engelhard page, Serial Numbers on smaller bars are
placed on bars more as a service for the individual investor, to help them to keep track of the bars they own.  The following is what is stated on PAMP's website about serial numbers:

Currently all PAMP bars are delivered to the international markets bearing individual serial numbers. (The respective certificate or certiPAMP packaging always bears the same number).

However, numbering was not always mandatory and therefore certain older PAMP bars in circulation do not bear these.

pamp 400oz gold barPAMP
Good Delivery 400oz. Gold Bar

The following offers a little more in-depth serial number information, in respect to 400oz. "Good Delivery" PAMP SA Gold Bullion Bars. 

Serial numbering systems: 400 oz. Letter plus 8 numbers. The serial number comprises 4 different codes.

1st code is a letter, which indicates the year the bar was made. 2nd code is a 4-digit number, which indicates the number assigned to the fusion (melting) process of a specific day. 3rd code is a 2-digit number,which indicates the progressive number assigned to each fusion cycle progressed during the day noted by the 2nd code. 4th code is a 2-digit number, which indicates the progressive number assigned to each bar. An example: A 01230212.

A serial numbering system was applied as standard practice only on 400 oz and 100 oz bars since 1984. Serial numbers on other bar weights were only applied on request.

Since 2012, almost all smaller cast and minted bars are now stamped with a letter and serial number.

with artistic designs.

The most recognized of these designs, is the Lady Fortuna (pictured left), which became synonymous with the PAMP name.

As an industry first, their aim has been to place a emphasis on the intrinsic beauty and value of precious metals.
