I am writing on behalf of friends who are looking for a reliable
place to send some platinum and gold that they have had for some
time. She said she worked at a chemical plant and saved the platinum
from “thermocouples” for many years, and has “about a one pound
chunk of platinum” and he has “industrial grade gold” that came from
relay contact points in scales. He thinks it is about 75% gold, and
said it includes copper, nickel and zinc. Total of about 1/2 pound.
If anyone is familiar with these metals in their current form, and
can suggest a place that they can safely send them to turn into
cash, they would appreciate the I told them if anyone
knew, it would be the kind folks on the Orchid list!
Thanks in advance,
Following my post above, I mentioned their question to my husband,
and he enlightened me to the possibility that these people may have
acquired their metals without permission from the chemical company.
I am a bit naive about things like this (My background in nursing
didn’t expose me to industrial procedures and protocols). So anyway,
I just want to make this disclaimer that I have no first hand
knowledge about how these materials were acquired, etc. These folks
just knew that I make jewelry, so asked me if I could tell them a
good source that buys metals.
