Precious metal recovery

If we can we will

Honest & Transparent

RSBruce recovers precious and valuable metal resources from solid and liquid wastes, chemical plant and equipment, parts, electronics and a wide range of materials from many industries. 


We have a wide range of technologies and equipment, developed to enable recovery of value in the form of metals, whether that be Platinum Group Metals: Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Iridium, Ruthenium etc.. or Metals such as Gold, Silver, Molybdenum, Cobalt, Titanium, Silver or Copper. 


Metal Recovery by Chemical Treatment & Leaching

We operate metal recovery processes on our customers’ and partners’ sites and on our own site here in Sheffield where we have fully enclosed acid picking and leaching lines and high-pressure wash stations.

For offsite work with have mobile vessels and fast tanks to enable us to create pickling and leaching processes local to the project, as you can see in the picture to the left. 


Metal Recovery by Incineration or Thermal Pre-Treatment

Many materials that cannot be recovered through other means, can be recovered through thermal pre-treatment / incineration. 

The thermal pre-treatment process produces a concentrated material, that can be sampled reliably before refining. This process is suitable for recovery from a very wide range of materials containing valuable metals. 

Metal Recovery from Surface Coatings and Various Solids

We specialise in the recovery of platinum group metals from solids and over the last 35 years have returned in excess of £1.5 Bn to our very happy customers.

Recovery of Precious Metals from Liquids

We are specialists in recovering precious metals dissolved in solutions. These can be acid, alkalis, aqueous or solvent based solutions. 

We specialise in the recovery of metals from waste streams in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries where there are only 100 ppm of precious metals such as Platinum, Palladium or Rhodium in the solution.
