Gold prices recovered by Rs 130 to Rs 30,200 per ten grams in the national capital on Monday on fresh buying by stockists.
However, silver held steady at Rs 53,500 per kg on lack of buying support from industrial units and coin makers.
Traders said fresh buying by stockists at prevailing lower levels mainly led to rise in gold prices.
Lack of buying support from industrial units and coin makers kept silver prices steady, traders said.
