We are excited to post this video and show you all our progress on processing printed circuit boards (PCB’s) for gold, copper and other metals with our hammer mill and shaker table. We have the ability to take whole boards, crush them, and run them on our shaker table. We are still in the experimental stage but we have high hopes to have a complete system ready to sell soon.
I should clarify that we can’t recover all the gold from the boards, but at the end of the video we do have free metallic gold in the gold pan. Our goal is to take whole boards and concentrate out the valuables (metals) from the non-values (fiberglass, plastic, etc). The free gold can easily be removed, melted, and sold directly to a gold buyer, leaving the concentrates, which are much more valuable that the boards themselves.
The remaining gold is plated onto other metals. This cannot be mechanically separated, but using the hammer mill and shaker table it can be concentrated into a salable product. The #2 and #3 hole outputs can be sold to a refiner and let them deal with all the chemicals and refining process. For most people its too complicated, dangerous, expensive, etc. to separate out the different metals in the concentrates.
As a side note the free gold per pound recovered from the ~20 pounds of boards equates to 1 troy ounce per ton of boards. This would be considered very high grade gold ore for any miner. The PCB’s also have loads of copper, tin, lead, plated gold, etc that is added value on top of that 1 oz/ton free gold recovered.
Stay tuned and please email or call if you are interested in any of our equipment.
