Metalor becomes an Ordinary Member of the London Bullion Market Association

Neuchâtel (Switzerland), 19/11/2012.

Metalor Technologies, the leading worldwide precious metals refiner based in Neuchâtel (Switzerland), is proud to announce that it has been named an Ordinary Member of the prestigious London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), with effect from 14th November 2012. The LBMA is the international trade association that represents the market for gold and silver bullion, which is centred in London but has a global client base. Members are mostly international banks, bullion dealers and refiners.

We are really honored that Metalor becomes an LBMA Ordinary Member among only 5 precious metals refiners in the world”, says Scott Morrison, CEO of the Metalor Group. “As a LBMA Good Delivery Company (*) since 2003, Metalor has been an active Associate Member of the Association for many years. We are pleased about this promotion, which demonstrates Metalor’s commitment to the global precious metals market and which is the result of a long-term and successful cooperation with the LBMA”.

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 an Ordinary Member, which represents the highest level of membership, Metalor 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.
