    If nothing else, now you know where the gold is kept in your computer, television and other electronics.

    Exactly. This is a lot of work, and a lot of health risk, for a small amount of gold...the setup would probably cost more than recovered gold. And that doesn't even allow for safety equipment when working with mercury.

    Then there's the environmental consideration. Even allowing that you have a respirator and a full CPO suit...that mercury vapor will blow somewhere. It's not good for anything, in any quantity. If you break a mercury switch (should have been recycled a long time ago) it's not a big deal except in the room it happens. If you make a hobby out of recovering gold in your basement, and blow the mercury vapor out...that's an ongoing toxic-waste emission into your local neighborhood. That mercury will condense and poison the soil or plant surfaces.

    If you want gold, go buy gold. You can't make gold out of lead, and you can't conjure it up. Do what you can to safely make money, and go to your gold/silver broker.

    He's usually the same small shop that sells and repairs guns. The two go together well - the theme is, self-reliance.

    Mercury is used in one procedure. It is not used for getting the gold out in another process.

    You are absolutely correct insofar as you do want to know what you're doing and what you're talking about before you do this.

    When I was in South Dakota..... just riding around the hills on my own...... parked the bike at OLD establishment full of antiques..... drank a beer and bought an old rusty gold pan. Was said that the rust helps hold the gold.
