  11. Hello, I’ve been following your YouTube videos and they are the best in this category.
    I tried your gold recovery on cellphone board and pins and was able to get some precipitate after using SBM.
    When I tried to melt the brownish colored deposit using oxy-acetylene flame, there was no gold. What did I do wrong?

    1. If your powder was minor quantity then you should not use a gas torch. You will need experience for gas torch using. Gas torch spread away gold powder if dod does not operate carefully.

      1. Thanks for your quick reply. The powder was not much and I’d hope to get about 1g of gold. I’ve learnt from this experience. Going forward, I will use crucible in air fired furnace.

  12. Hello
