    Why wouldn't you keep that gold?

    creeper, they pay 95% of spot. I had somewhat over an ounce of 14k scrap gold I've found here and there with my metal detector, but the really nice rings (vintage stuff) I've kept. 18k on up has a higher gold content, and so consequently I would have made more $$ if my stuff was 18k.

    Matt, I sent it in 'cuz needed the cash!

    here it is: http://www.midwestrefineries.com/

    I learned of this refiner here on Tnet, and everyone spoke highly of it. So I tried it, and am not disappointed. In fact, I sent my stuff out 8 days ago first class mail (with insurance, of course) and got my check today. It may not always work this fast for everyone, but that's pretty fast in my book.

    That is a decent check for sure, if I found any gold I'd surely mail it in for some hard cash! Ray, don't worry because people will continue to lose things and I am sure you will find it. Happy hunting
