What We Do

Precious metals platers trust Sims Precious Metals Group to reclaim their precious metal from plating solutions. As a unit of the publicly traded corporation Sims Limited, we are Sarbanes-Oxley compliant, and all our transactions and settlements are subject to independent audit.

For platers, we process gold, silver, platinum and palladium solutions and sludges, rags, wipes and jars and other precious metal bearing materials.

We have rigorous protocols for safe handling and processing precious metals-bearing materials and hazardous wastes. Transparency in all our activities is a core driver for our business.

Our Chicago refinery is fully permitted and certified, ensuring responsible processing and environmental compliance. SLS can provide transportation of regulated materials, and assistance with manifests and drum labels.
