    Yes sir. HCL and a little peroxide. That’s my plan to start off. I’ll deal with refining the foils once I’m set up a bit better.

    I do the silver plate. You have to have a lot of scrap. I normally buy the silver-plate flatware (cheap) or other silver plated items. things needed are battery charger, stainless steel butter knife, salt, Hydrogen Peroxide, 2 any type of glass ware (I use canning jars). Go to YouTube and type in Silver plate removal. There are all kinds of ways to strip the silver off. I did about 200 hundred give or take did get a little over 8 ounces of the silver plate and what else comes off of it. Smelting the powder I did get just at 2 ounces of silver. I'm retired and have plenty of time to do this. Plus the fact people see that silver is going up so kinda hard to get good deal on scrap silver-plated items. Oh yes muriatic acid. No harmful chemicals. Go to Youtube it will show how to do the process.

    I do this with copper. Not as cool as gold but I can get up to $100 worth of copper a day from free stuff on Facebook/Craigslist. Getting that much gold daily is just simply impossible without getting scrap electronics by the ton.

    The gold is fun but surly nothing wrong with copper. I have been stock piling copper for a while now. Probably several hundred pounds or so.

    I love the gold prospecting but really it’s valuable, semi valuable metals overall. Heck I even have a nice stack of clean extruded aluminum piling up. Like money in the bank. But money the bank can’t steal and the gov has yet to tax to death.

    You guys are really missing out on true urban prospecting, I find gold, silver jewelry on the bottom of hills here in the University District of Seattle after heavy rain storms and don't forget about dumpster diving, I found a 1867 gold franc coin in a garbage can, with a lot of other coins but it is now worth over 560$ also I will add that I have hundreds of IC chips from the late 1970's and they are so full of gold, believe it or not some of these memory chips I paid over a hundred dollars for a 128 Byte memory chip.

    I have often thought about looking in the older parts of town for dropped items.
