I have a few motherboards from old workstations that seem to have more
than the usual amount of gold on them; traces are gold, not just the
Does anyone have suggestions as to how to easily:
1) determine if the gold is worth recovering
2) remove the gold for purposes of selling it
I am told that some recyclers have a big smelter, and the circuit boards
are dumped in by the 50-gallon barrel load, then the gold is paid for
after the smelting operation is done. However I do not have that
quantity of boards.
Ideas, thoughts, experience all welcome.
