I suggest Pease and Curren and Advanced Chemical. They are both in
RI. I use them both and I have had great returns from them.
My advice to you is no matter who you send your metal to weigh all
of your silver scrap, your gold scrap, and your platinum scrap
separately. Bag them up separately with notes on the bags, and write
them a letter informing them of your knowledge of your weights.
Before you send it, discuss the best way to get the best return for
your money. Many companies have several ways of reclaiming metal and
they can help you to figure out which one to use.
Platinum costs extra to refine, usually about $100 additional if
they refine all of your stuff together, so you will want to weigh
your platinum and figure out if you have enough to make it
worthwhile. Right now it is about $1285 on oz but that is only $41 a
gram, so it will cost you at least 2 or 3 grams to pay for the extra
One last thing, you might consider having them send your gold back
to you as.9995 gold casting grain. Why sell gold and then buy more.
they will take the charges out of you metal totols and sned you a
check and gold you can decide.
PS, we just sent out a 35 gallon drum full of sand paper, floor
sweeping, lint from the buffer, crap like that. We retrieved 4 oz.s
of 24K gold!!! It only cost $200 to refine, well worth having a
barrel around the shop. It took 2 years to fill up the barrel with
junk.Our maintance folks hired a new janitor and forgot to tell them
to put the sweepings in the barrel and I didn’t find out for about 6
monthes! I wonder how much we had thrown away? Dennis
Good luck, Dennis
