From what I've heard refiners pay even less 70-80% for Palladium. I don't know about Platinum.

Think you have them opposite. Platinum has a really high melting point which makes it harder to refine.
PD I get 95% or so. PT about 90% of spot price. PT999% pays about 95%

Steve is pretty close....thou even refineries very. Just know up front those percentages and how they figure it...and some can be negotiated with. I had one jeweler who wouldnít give me a set percentage he kept saying we pay penny weight based on the days spot melt. What was he telling me? ARA still seems to be paying higher melt percentages. Iíll let ya know how well their pencil is sharpened since I just sent a little in.

Dew, do let us know about ARA. I am considering this myself and even heard about a refinery near ATLANTA but not sure if they deal with the public or how their prices work....

Probably, because all of us know how to sell to ARA or Midwest. No point in offering someone 80% of Spot, if they can just ship it to ARA themselves, and pick up the difference.

Never even bothered to try to sell here. If I'm looking for something better than spot value, a metal detecting forum likely isn't it.
