Precious metal services

We provide a comprehensive range of services throughout the complete gold value chain.
This includes assaying, refining, selling the finished product in the market, responsible sourcing of gold from African gold suppliers.


We provide comprehensive assaying service to our clients dealing only with reputable and ISO standard registered assayers. The full service assaying laboratories use Fire Assaying for large scale purity testing together with ICP machines. We are typically able to deliver assay results within 24 hours.


We deal with the largest refineries with the highest standards in assaying, refining and smelting. AURUM GROUP is an industry leader in terms of customer service, efficiency and quality. The refinery uses cutting-edge technology and its products are widely accepted by international banks, bullions dealers, jewellers and traders worldwide.


Our facility offers a ready market for trading precious metal products. The gold is then sold in the local market to investment and bullion banks, jewellers and investors. This allows us to obtain the best possible prices for our customers with the smallest possible spreads. We are typically able to provide immediate payment to our clients’ account in full on receipt of assay.


We have an extensive network in Africa of responsible and ethical gold and precious metals producers. Our suppliers include larger refineries, traders and miners. All our customers undergo a rigorous examination to ensure they meet our highly responsible sourcing standards in accordance with the SADPMR and RJC C.O.C. guidelines.


We partner with industry leaders in the field of global gold logistics to provide an end to end transport solution, with safety and insurance paramount. We assist in logistics involved from export of country of origin and import and customs clearance.
