How To Recover Gold From Computer Scrap with Household Chemicals


To contribute:

Computer scrap has an undeterminable amount of gold. This enables sellers to charge, and get, from two to ten times what the scrap is worth in terms of the amount of gold that it contains. This video shows that it’s not easy to get the gold and that the amount of gold yielded is very low. Now you have a place to look BEFORE you spend your hard-earned money on this kind of over-priced scrap.

    Can you just melt the gold with a blow torch or do you have to go threw this whole chemical process?

  7. Nolan Foster says

    And could you refine the gold to 24k just using the ap since you are pretty much taking out the copper nickel base metals then smelt the gold?

  8. Nolan Foster says

    Could you just neutralize the liquid with baking soda ?

  14. David Boettcher says

    Why use a small table band saw to cut fingers.

  15. Rob Hill says

    Only 1 gram?? That's only worth a little over $55.00 usd, Looks like with your initial cost plus cost of chemicals, etc, you are losing money.

    So if i ga to our local trashpark and i steal the old computers i can make gold?

  17. FirstName LastName says

    I got a bunch of this for free long ago, I still have like 10lbs of already cut RAM fingers and processors sitting around waiting for me to get the courage and motivation to recycle the gold and other PMs from the other components.

    I really enjoy your videos, yes it takes one heck of a hill of beans to make a nice payout and most ebay sellers are ripping off people who are looking to profit by refinery. If the sellers would be honest and drop their prices by 80 percent or so, going back to the supplier too maybe much more people could be in actual business.

  22. Anong Maungsai says

    Lovely gold:::)))


    Modern times prospecting…


    Thank you sensa..that was sick

  25. n0beard says

    Informative video. The primary question: where should we get the various parts at a cheap price in order to make a profit?

  26. edwin berrios says

    All that for that that’s like working for minimum wage after you spend all that money in liquid powder and time ?

  27. Palash Bansal says

    1gm gold after buying scrap from so high price and all the cost incurred in material used in procedure.

  28. Rebecca Wood says

    Cool Video! I just spent the last several days taking apart computer hard drives to get the magnets and discs out (I use them for craft projects). As you just proved, it would have been very labor intensive to get all the metal off of the circuit boards due to how little precious metal could be collected. I trashed the circuit boards and sold the rest of the metal as scrap. This video showing the multistep process was very interesting though!

  29. Epicstaches says

    Actually I'd be really interested to know if one could just reuse the solution after dumping the fingers out and filtering to just add more fingers and a little bit of fresh solution

  30. Davids Enterprise says

    lot of work but interesting


    I like how you used peroxide acid first then aqua Regia.

  32. k klages says

    Thanks but i just have a one shot amount of circuit boards.

  33. Colby Merritt says

    wow amazing, great will inspiration for everyone, nice job bro!


    Just some advice, if you'd get right handed tin snips it'd make your life a bit easier. You're using lefty snips. Good job though.

    ahhh too many step man too many stepp,i watch on archimedes channel it so simple why this look so hard to do, im looking for more easy way but this too long

  38. Vern Cotta says

    If he keeps all the gold he extracts for another 5 years he'll have an enormous profit. Gold could hit 10k to 25k an ounce.

  39. knight allen says

    when cutting the fingers off I would suggest using a metal sheer, like just a cheep H.F. throatless sheer but from the video I would say woodward fab and there benchtop sheer would help this be a much faster and precise prosses.

  40. Frank Castle says

    Congratulations! You spent more than you made!!! Yay!!!

  41. Ibum says

    Is it patched now?
