Silver Scrap in Canada


#1

Hi everyone, I have about five pounds of sterling silver scrap that
I’d like to dispose of. Does anyone know of a refiner in Canada (who,
where?) who would take the scrap and exchange it for new metal in
sheet or wire form?

Cheers,

Hi There, I have been lurking on the Orchid List (not enough
experience to open my mouth about anything!! Other than to say
"Thanks" to all those that offer such good advice so freely!!) I
have been learning so much from everyone there that I can’t resist
giving back what little I can.

Hello Hans! If you are willing to pay the shipping price, there is
Kitco, in Montreal, that buys scrap metal and sells sheet, wire,
grain, solder, etc. You can visit their web site at kitco.com, or
call them at the following number: (514)875-4820.

Have a nice day!

Hans, You might want to try Imperial Smelting in Markham, Ontario at
905-475-9566, email:sales@imperialproducts.com. They are a bit of a
hike for you, but they may have an office/plant nearby.

Hi Hans, I think the nearest place is Quebec city. You have to think
about the cost of the shipment. You can call Oroplata in Quebec city
they give a good price for scrap. Guy Audette

Hans I often buy my silver sheet and wire from KITCO in Montreal. I
have not yet sold them my scrap, but I have inquired and they do buy
scrap silver and offer a reasonable price for it. They can be reached
at 1-800-363-7053.

There is another company in Vancouver who does the same, I have not
had any dealings with them and can not remember their name at the
moment. If you want their info, contact me off line and I will find
it for you.
