    Where are places I can sell some placer fines and a few nuggets that are reliable sources?
    Have just over 52 grams total
    If I could figure out how to attach a picture I would
    Thanks in advance

    Sorry no help on the pic
    Gold and silver coin shops will buy raw gold
    pawn shops
    jewelry shops
    sometimes dentists, most no longer use gold
    fly by night gem shows

    BE VERY CAUTIOUS AND WEARY OF ALL

    Here is the important part
    know what you have, raw gold is not pure, will have other metals in the mix
    test your gold for purity yourself, know its karat and that will start to set a value, test kits are available
    dont let someone else test it and say "oh its only 14K" not worth much
    the real karat value will vary depending on where it came from
    Try and get two quotes from different buyers on what they will give you for what you have, if they wont move on
    dont count on getting spot price, if your lucky 60% spot unless your bringing a truck load
    pickers and nuggets should bring a higher value depending on many factors, if not move on
    Know the value of what you have to know if your getting a fair deal before going anywhere
    people give their stuff away because they dont know what they have

    Good Luck and dont let anyone rip you off

    I would offer you 80% spot price by weight. Most placer is in the 16 to 18 K
