    Metal recovery via chemistry

    Lightarrow. Thank you for your input. You seem to have a good knowlage of what we are trying to accomplish, would you consider looking over this thread here and see if you can shed some light? Thanks Mike http://goldrefiningforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=5690&start=80

    Metal recovery via chemistry

    Vitamin c is relatively expensive for this process. I am looking for a way to cut the cost factor and reuse as much as possible. That is a very good link to the patent. Thank you Lightarrow. Not being a chemist it will take me a while to decipher tho...

    Metal recovery via chemistry

    I have used Aqua regia to disolve gold, but it is not as selective as I would like for some of the parts I do. I know that iodine will work, I just have not found the method to drop the gold and regenerate the solution for reuse. I know it was used commercially for a while before cyanide...

    Metal recovery via chemistry

    Many of the parts we work with are plated. Copper, nickel, Kovar base metals that must be removed or separated. Iodine is reported to be selective enough to just remove the gold. I am still looking for a way to "drop" the gold from the Iodine and still be able to reconstitute the Iodine solution...

    Thanks for the link Borek. Here is a quote>>>> Originally Posted by Mapes Good point. G01, what is the underlying sample made of? Potassium iodide is another good selective etchant for gold. Yes. In the mean time I have done some research and decided that a 1:2:10 mix of I2, KI, and...

    Metal recovery via chemistry

    Thanks. Yes I believe copper will drop the gold, but it would render the iodine solution infective for further use. I would like to reuse the iodine solution. I am trying to cut down on chem use during the process.

    Metal recovery via chemistry

    I am working on a pilot project to recover gold from circuit boards. I have tried several methods and am interested in giving iodine a try. I know it will dissolve the gold but I cannot find an answer on how to get the iodine solution to drop the gold. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Telepathy in dreamstate and OBEs

    I know telepathy works in a dream state as it has happened to me many years ago. I will tell more if any one is interested.

    I love my job

    That is a very cool model Cyrus. The stealth aspects of it are interesting. Just curious, How do you test it at higher speeds. Are these tests just used to make sure it can take off and land?

    The hat's where its at! Did you watch a few Hypatia? There is such a positive vibe to the whole thing. This guy has nailed something lacking and something we all need a little bit of.

    DRM and the music industry

    I think this guy has got it right, put it out there, have fun, see who buys. Seems to be working for him judging by the comments. Watch a few vids and you will see what I mean. Then buy the cd,lol I did. http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=EvCaK1_CRCo&feature=channel
