Morris & Watson were the first company to provide a refining service for lemels and sweeps (floor scraps) to the precious metals industry in New Zealand and have since expanded our operations to Australia and Thailand.

We use tried and tested refining techniques, state of the art refining equipment, a modern processing facility, fully equipped on-site assay laboratory and a highly accurate administration system, enabling us to fully recover the precious metals and give the customer reliable, accurate and prompt results and returns.

Extraordinary care is taken with every refining job we receive, including multiple weighing verification steps, multiple analysis checks, ISO certified assay procedures and special job processing techniques.

We guarantee to process your scrap in the most efficient and accurate manner, to give you the best possible return on your refining (which could be anything including scrap, lemels, or general factory waste).

We know how important turn-around times are to our customers business’s, so we make this our highest priority. We aim to be an industry leader in this aspect and pride ourselves on putting the customer first.

Typical turn-around times for scrap and lemel is 5 working days and sweeps is 10 working days (subject to workload, material type and other factors).

We will provide prompt payment for your refining or return of metals in bullion or fabricated forms.

Morris and Watson operates under strict environmental emissions licenses and health and safety practices for all of aspects of business operations. Furthermore, we go above and beyond to ensure that our waste monitoring procedures minimize our environmental impact.
