Platinum and Palladium Certified Reference Materials - Presentation to the LBMA Assaying Conference

Platinum and Palladium Certified Reference Materials from the LBMA Assaying & Refining Conference 2017

22 June 2017

The Certified Reference Materials (CRMs)were manufactured by Tanaka K.K. and analysed for homogeneity and the contained elements by the five LPPM referees and five other prominent Platinum Group Metal (PGM) companies, worldwide.

All the results of extensive testing were coordinated and statistically analysed by Dr Mike Hinds of the Royal Canadian Mint.

These are the first Platinum and Palladium CRMs and we believe this is an important step forward for the PGM industry’s analytical chemistry development.
