    Please elaborate. As far as I remember all metals are to some extent soluble in Hg.

    Should be no problem, both Ag and Au are well soluble in Hg. Unless you plan to do something that requires quite high concentrations.

    I work on sub (ppm) concentration.
    however thanks for your Attention.
    best regards.
