Platinum will need to be analyzed by your scrap yard and have no attachments.
Where Can Platinum Be Found?
Platinum found in catalytic converters is hard to get to so be sure to bring whole Catalytic Converter to a scrap yard to get the best prices considering all of the platinum is inside. If you are trying to remove the Platinum from a catalytic converter you will most likely lose money from it because the metal isn’t refined to pure levels. To get the best prices for platinum, make sure it is clean and separated from the rest of your scrap metal. Also call more than one yard near you. The only way to truly know if you have platinum or not is by using an XRF Analyzer, or by sending the material out to be tested by a lab.
