Recovering Gold from Electronic Scrap. Those Old Electronic Parts Will Turn To Little Round Lumps Of Pure Gold!

There is a lot of hidden gold in everyday electronics, just waiting to be harvested. Gold makes a very good electrical conductor, so it’s often used to plate board edges to enhance performance.

If you have a very well ventilated room, safety goggles, gloves, and a respirator, you can make a small fortune recycling electronic scrap! Don’t let hidden valuables slip out of your grasp!

    I depends on the material. TV boards have a very low yield. 25 grams per ton. Ram has 700 grams per ton. We make a soup of about 180 grams per ton.

    I’m a Bladesmith and reclaim metals like this all the time. Even break them down a purify them as well. Far easier than one may think to do it. Those that feel this is to dangerous it’s because they do not understand the process and do not know how to do it safely.

    Misleading as hell. Possible, absolutely. Here are some real numbers to stave off your gold fever. The pieces in this video are known as “fingers”, which are cut off ram and cards that plug into the motherboard. The pieces in the video came from 30 to 50 computers torn down for scrap. Fingers are the absolute easiest thing to process, and that process can still kill you if you’re an idiot and don’t educate yourself first. The acids and other chemicals involved are no joke.

    Matt, if you add one step to your process and remove all gold plated fingers as well as cpu’s and IC’s, you will well increase your pm yield, as well as make your refiner more happy.

    If only we had a better way to separate the skin from the aluminum platter huh. 🙂

    Then you end up with literally tons of low yield crap. Smelt costs are north of $.30 per pound and freight is $.09. If you remove all the high yield material you end up with mountains of material that’s worth about $.35 a pound. To low to be shipped and treated but to valuable to let sit.

    These look like the connectors on ram, PC memory. There are many other places and devices that have gold in them.

    I have just bought a simple pen plating setup. I haven’t started yet, just started reading and learning. I have 2 old laptops and several old phones stored and was wondering if I place the gold electroplated pieces from these devices in a small amount of the electroplating solution would it dissolve into the solution or if just left in it, would it act as an anode and transfer to the cathode? Thanks in advance.
