    I swear I heard your voice in another channel

    I’ve been to Chernobyl recently – there’s looted computer parts everywhere around government objects – stalkers tried to get as much gold as they could out of the situation. Also bathtubs. Don’t ask.

    when you do it on a grand scale it pays of go to the carbage dump recycling get all the tv’s computers etc that will get you gold i used to recycle photo developer from hospitals the xray photo developers to catch the silver by electrolyse$$$$$$$$$

    That was awesome to watch. Thanks for sharing the experience!

    Is that it 😂

    I just watched a Diamond Monster 3D card… My FIRST 3D video card… Destroyed! 😭😭💔💔

  8. NineTwoFive on June 18, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Nice video 👍
    Looking forward for the next one.
    Just wanna mention out some points.
    Adding the SMB to the gold solution is an exothermic reaction. You might have a boil over effect because this. My advice. Use a taller beaker.
    Also. The SMB reaction is kinda slow when the gold concentration is low. I noticed that the colour of the waste changed after you filtered it. Definitely a loss of gold there.
    My advice. Let is set over night. It will collect in the bottom of the beaker. Then filtration is not necessary. You can siphon of the liquid. Then test the waste with Stannous. (Tin2 chloride) so you are sure that everything is precipitated 👍

    Столько много техники было и 0.3грамма
    . Видимо где-то потери большие. У меня из 4х материнских плат, ноутбука и 2 старых телефонов получил 1,7гр Au. 999°

  10. John Davis on June 18, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    You probably lost half of your gold to not knowing what you are doing. Not a put down should have gotten a lot more. It’s a big learning curve.

  11. Mario Sanchez on June 18, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    There’s is a show here in US called Alaska gold or something they tear up 100 of acres of beautiful Alaska land to get what I have we can get doing Urban prospecting

    Bel video

  13. Nic Moreno on June 18, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    More interesting than anything else…

  14. Amer Khan on June 18, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Nice work man. I do enjoy your out-of-the-box content.

  15. Daniel Stellmon on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Glad you did it for fun. I had fun watching.

  16. Viktor Mironov on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    It’s been very interesting to watch the video! Thank You very much!

  17. hossyin mohamdzade on June 18, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    excuse me as regard this operation in this clip l think one of procses has been omitted or you get something wrong hcl can’t dissolve the gold alone but you method founation on it

  18. D O on June 18, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    This was very nice

  19. Doc Lock on June 18, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Surprisingly easy to do with some common ingredients and other easy to acquire ones. On a small scale not monetarily worth it but fun.

    Insomma, per guadagnarci qualcosa bisogna farlo davvero su larghissima scala, altrimenti c’è giusto la soddisfazione

  22. Hammad Naeem on June 18, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Loved the video and subscribed.

    The gold medal of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics is made by the world’s first effort to smelt metal by collecting unnecessary mobile phones, smartphones, personal computers, etc. from all over Japan.

    This initiative uses the ones collected from April 2017 to March 2019 as the "Make from Urban Mines! Everyone’s Medal Project".

    The project produced about 3 kilograms of gold, about 3500 kilograms of silver, and about 2200 kilograms of copper, which were used to create the approximately 5,000 medals needed for the Olympics and Paralympics.

    The world’s first attempt to recycle the resources that are sleeping in each home and business can be said to be a world-class initiative.

    New sub, I have watched hundreds of e waste to gold videos and yours was awesome

  25. Shane York on June 18, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    You lost a 2 to 3 grams of gold because you did not let it precipitate out nearly long enough. I could see very clearly that you poured out alot of the gold, too bad!! It would’ve made your regular viewers alot more excited!! It’s a spectacular thing to see the transfer of the sodium metabisulfite to gold. Two to three hours or over night is best. The liquid would be as clear as water on top.
    I’d highly recommend buying or finding another load of ewaste, but study the dropping of the gold a little bit more. You’d love it even more if you had a nugget that was 10 times bigger, because that is what you would’ve had.
    Good try for first time. I’ll give you sub anyway though! 🙂

  26. okatbikes on June 18, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    You have the telltale callouses of a mountain biker. Correct assumption?

  27. Chosen1One on June 18, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    You clearly miseed a decent amount of gold but thats typical for newbies

  28. David Whyte on June 18, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Great video, loved the golden color of the dissolved gold. Glad you got a nice bead of gold from the hard work.

  29. Tim Hitt on June 18, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    You should post on Rumble too

  30. Abhishek Mahapatra on June 18, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Very nice & interesting experiment 👍🏻

  31. ak101farhan on June 18, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Well atleast you can say you didn’t throw away gold like we all have.

  33. Jack DeLancey on June 18, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Enjoyable to watch 👍

  34. jake brake junky on June 18, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    I have always been interested in doing that as well. I have a ton of e-waste ive collected over the years. Maybe once I retire in will look into doing this so i will have all the time I need to do it. Would definitely like to see the rest of it processed.

  35. Rombizio on June 18, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Interesting. The process is cool. A shame it doesnt even pay for the materials used.

  36. EWASTE -JD- PRECIOUS METALS on June 18, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    This is why I also love my e waste it gives me some profit from recovering precious metal.

  37. Mahmud Saidych on June 18, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Стоило ли тратить столько времени ради такого урожая 😂😂😂

  38. Order of Chaos on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    a gold bean

  39. Poor miners on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    yes, bill all to this guy, another knowledge, lots of e-waste,thanks for sharing great video sir..

  40. Arlynne Cumberbatch on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

  41. Light Theory LLC on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Salam brother

  42. Sam Calloway on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Make a go of the other components. Great content! Keep ’em coming!

  43. Edgard Lima on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Me fijé en el vídeo que el papel filtro ya tenía partículas de oro, antes de filtrar el líquido.

  44. AbbyKeetie on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Ohhh I can see the retro electronic channels crying at the way you destroyed all those old chips and rams that have no gold on them but are irreplaceable now days.

  45. Rafael on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Very good!

  46. paranoid harith on June 18, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    where can i find this drill? can anyone help me know the name?

  47. Nemesis Divino on June 18, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    The most valuable thing is how to recover plastic worldwide from these type of waste. It has to be our main goal. Without that, we are lost, if we are not already.

  48. fajar andhika on June 18, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Amazing 🔥 need more videos

  49. trashing88 on June 18, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    as far as i know the gold you recovered is only the solid part which was not disolved in the HCl + H202 mix. You filtered the solid stuff and recovered the tiny nugget fromn that but the majority amount of gold is in the greenish solution that you filled in the canister. So if you recover gold from that solution you will get much more gold. There are about 30g of Gold in 1 ton of mixed e-waste.
