• Argor–Heraeus and PAMP become Ordinary Members of the London Bullion Market Association

    Argor–Heraeus and PAMP SA, two of the most important and internationally renowned precious metals refineries in the world, announced today that they had been appointed as “Ordinary Members” of the prestigious London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), as of the 7th of November 2012.

    The LBMA is the London-based trade association, operating at global level and representing the wholesale market for gold and silver; their ongoing activities involve many different areas, such as refining standards, good trading practices and standard documentation.

    It is an unusual honor for the LBMA to recognize this prestigious membership status on refineries. PAMP and Argor-Heraeus now join a group of only five such members, the others being Metalor (Switzerland), Tanaka (Japan) and Rand Refinery (South-Africa).

    The LBMA's current membership stands at over 130 companies in 20 countries, which have been admitted at different levels of participation as either Associates, Market Making Members or Ordinary Members. All companies within the membership must have activities that are closely related to the London market in gold or silver bullion. These activities include trading, broking, shipping and storage, mining and refining, inspection and assaying, and research.

    As Ordinary Members, Argor–Heraeus and PAMP will now be able to vote on various issues deliberated upon at the Association’s Annual General Meetings, nominate candidates for LBMA Committees and sponsor applications from other companies applying to become Members or Associates.

    Both companies, Argor–Heraeus and PAMP, were already listed as “LBMA Good Delivery” accredited refineries and were affiliated to the LBMA as “Associates”, before being admitted as “Ordinary Members”.
