Hi this is a really informative thread it has inspired me to dig out the boxes of old pc equipment i have and go gold refining.
Would it cause any problems to the process if you delayed any of the stages after starting the process, such as leaving the pins, memory board clipping etc sitting in the acid for several days. Or left the gold suspended in the yellow liquid stage for several days? before completing the process.

Hi has anyone bought any of these melted ingots of gold cpu pins from Israel or Germany that are sold on Ebay? They say they can't guarantee the gold content so it seems a big gamble although they seem to sell for £30 to £50 for a 100gm or so.
Anyone had any experience of processing this type of scrap and what percentage of gold did you manage to refine?
Also as these are a melted mix of metals etc am i right in thinking you need to start the process from the very start with nitric.
Sorry about all the questions but am looking to expand my knowledge of this process.

Dear Dummies Guide and user

i am tried to gold and silver process i very happy to thanks .


3. apply a mixture of 1:3 nitric/hydrochloric acid (aqua regia) to the gold to completely dissolve it
4. filter the resulting yellow liquid to remove any remaining impurities
5. neutralize any left over nitric acid still in the yellow liquid with urea
6. stop Fizz then to put sodium Bisulfite (NaSHO3) after 24 hour wait but precipitate the brown coloured "gold sediment" very small (MUD precipitate ) not clean water what happened how many time long wait
please to reply thanks

Hello, Great and very informative. Just had 2 questions in regards to your statement, ' With the quantity of gold in this tutorial, using the plastic pipette, I added 5 drops of nitric and 15 drops of hydrochloric making a 1:3 mixture of Aqua Regia, ' how did you come up with those specific measurements? Is it like a ratio of the weight of the gold to so much solution or what? If so about how much weight were you working with?

I have several gold plated contact pins that I want to reclaim the gold from. These particular pins have rhodium plating as well. Is it worth trying to reclaim the rhodium or should I just sell the rhodium plated portion as scrap?

I have read through the thread and have not found a ratio.
Is there a index for AR mix to gold ratio?, How much ml of AR per 9ct/kt gram for instance.
One has put cell phone pins plus bits of board with gold on plus some 9ct/kt scrap, Started to bubble so I left it over night.
Come back next day it had finished reaction but there was still much gold, So One added some more AR with no reaction like the first time.
Can One get some help please.
Regards

P.s Thanks for this thread

Hello, amazing posts!!!!
Only got one question for the moment at least..
Is there any chance for providing time/duration for all the steps???
I am currently doing the first step with the nitric acid and the water, been two hours and there is still bubbling, so I was wondering how much time it will take.
Thanks in advance, keep it up!!!!!
