What are Precious Metals?

Precious metals are rare, naturally occurring metals including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

They are among the most valuable resources in the world used to make jewellery and electrical equipment.

Chemically, the precious metals tend to be less reactive than other metals.

Industrial precious metal mining can destroy landscapes, contaminate water supplies with mercury and cyanide, and contribute to the destruction of ecosystems.
