2 Best Gold and Precious Metals Refining and Recovery Books

Thousand have download my free report on recovering gold from plated materials, though I do not recommend that anyone do their own refining unless they REALLY know what they are doing, follow all the regulations and safeguards. I thought that even if one does not want to do their own refining, it is good to know how it is done when dealing with refiners. Both of these books helped me a great deal early on in my business. In fact, I was fortunate enough to have corresponded with both authors and got a lot of help.

I've provided links to the books at They're pretty pricey. You may be able to do better at a local used bookstore.

Pallet Load of E-Waste to Cashforcomputerscrap

Hi - Well, after my terrible experience with ECS Refining, a wasted day and 400 miles of driving for nothing, I palletized my load of mid to high grade circuit boards and sent them off to Cashforcomputerscrap. Once I hear back about the value of the pallet, I'll fill you in on what was promised and what went wrong at ECS Refining. I've dealt with Cashforcomputerscrap once before and it was a perfect deal. I sent CPUs and memory and I was paid about 15% MORE than I expected. There was no out of pocket expense as they arranged shipping and then deducted the cost from my settlement. I had a check in my hand in California in less than 10 days after sending my shipment to their facility in Mentor, Ohio. Such a deal!

Electronic Scrap, E-Waste, E-Scrap Adventures - Sorting out e-scrap buyers

Hi - Well, I've had quite a couple of weeks with e-scrap. I'm responsible to you all - readers of the blog, visitors to the website and purchasers of the ebook - to investigate buyers of our scrap and to report back to you. I've found a buyer on the West Coast who treated me right, one that didn't at all. A great one in Ohio. I'm busy today palletizing a load, but hope to have photos and a detailed reports on the "good, bad and the ugly." :) Stay tuned.
