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 items, 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.
