Recovering/recycling Gold from Electronic Parts


I like to join in and learn to recycle computer gold bearing electronic parts. If you have a very basic (to understand) manual/how to book I would be grateful if I could get a copy of it. I have being searching the net but very little comes up when looking for free* how-to instructions.

Recovering Gold & Other Precious Metals from Electronic Scrap [Kindle Edition /ebook]


Hi, Johnny. letters 771b and 18889 should be helpful, but I'd suggest that you try to get to a library to find a book on recycling precious metals rather than relying on "free" how-to instructions.

Everyone works for a living and when something is free, there is usually some way they are making money from their effort. One of those ways may be by swaying you to buy their machine, another way is to get you to believe there is money to be made if you buy their toxic e-waste from them. A third way is to make advertising revenue from pages with "how to" instructions -- but no particular concern whether the instructions actually work because the object is getting internet traffic rather than informing you :-)
