Gold Fingers – How to Recover Gold from Electronic Scrap

Gold Fingers – How to Recover Gold from Electronic Scrap

http://www.goldnscrap.com In this video tutorial i’m showing how to recover gold from electronic circuit board scrap. Specifically the gold plating that is found on the board connector edge – A.K.A the “fingers”.
This video is a complementary to the complete written tutorial on Gold-N-Scrap website (direct link below)

The process applies to other kinds of gold plated itmes, given the substrate is unreactive (such as PCB, ceramic, glass etc’…). This process is less suitable for metallic items that are gold plated such as gold plated pins and gold filled items, though it will work with much effort and large consumption of acid.

Post a comment and let us know how much gold do you think this recovery process yielded.

  9. Jason on October 5, 2021 at 6:54 am

    "It’s too hard!!!"
    Yeah. That’s why gold is f–king expensive. If you came here looking to get rich quick, you might as well go down to the creek and pan for nuggets. Great rewards come from great effort. Quitcher whinin’.

  10. Michael Sparks on October 5, 2021 at 6:57 am

    1.7 maybe 2 Grams. Plus the headache that comes with scavenging around for old used giveaway electronics.. Just not worth it. Free HCL acid just reminds me of why I don’t want this solution in my house. However, if you can get enough fingers over a period of time it might be a good way to make a nice set of earrings for the little lady.

  11. mojigepard on October 5, 2021 at 6:57 am

  21. Abhimanyu Lochav on October 5, 2021 at 7:13 am

    I was taught not to add water in acid because of exothermic reaction which releases excessive amount of heat and may even cause an explosion. One should add acid to water.

    Can’t knock it for a hobby. It’s a great method. I don’t always take as many steps as this, i just use muriatic acid and hydrogen peroxide and it doesn’t take me more then a couple of days each batch.

    Gold silver and other precious metals could be very effectively recovered by using the 3 dimensional cathodic cartridges and the equipment to be used for these cartridges is very economical . For the details can mail me preciousmetalsrecovery at gmail dot com

    Why not recover the foils and not go through the complete process of refining and sell as scrap gold>

  47. Troy Moore on October 5, 2021 at 7:39 am

    a question of curiosity: would heating this solution increase the speed of the process?
