Republic Metals Corporation Speaks on Responsible Sourcing at the International Gold Conference


Miami, Florida, May 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lindsey Rubin, Secretary of Republic Metals Corporation, spoke on technological alchemy, ethical sourcing and responsible business practices at the Seventh Annual International Gold Conference, hosted by Initiatives in Art and Culture in New York City on Thursday, April 27th.

The event took a comprehensive look at gold, with a focus on jewelry; it explored the underpinnings of gold's abiding emotional power, allure, and enduring value. Mrs. Rubin sat on a panel discussion about the different transformations of gold, and on another panel addressing the topics of ethical sourcing, transparency, and responsible practices relating to gold, where she outlined Republic’s narrow sourcing model.

 “Republic Metals’ proprietary refining techniques allow us to offer end-consumers the ability to trace the chain-of-custody of their material back to the originating mine,” said Mrs. Rubin. “I was honored to share this new initiative with an audience of talented and brilliant leaders of social change who understand the importance of responsible sourcing and ethical business practices.”
