  • Scrap Dental Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium First Melt

    This is a typical dental office scrap lot that has been mixed with flux, placed into a carbon/graphite crucible, and then placed in an induction furnace. An electro-magnetic field is created around the crucible and the metal molecules in the scrap and the crucible are excited and heated. After several minutes, depending on volume of scrap, the material is poured into a cone mold to separate the metal from non-metal.

  • Melting Silver - 32.15 Toz (1 Kg) 999 Bullion Bar

    http://www.goldnscrap.com ** Melting Silver, Here's a short demonstration of meltdown and casting of a 1 Kilogram (32.15 Troy Ounces) Silver Bullion Bar. Please note, the Silver was melted inside a graphite crucible (keeps Oxygen out) using an electric furnace. The actual pour of the metal is done all the while a propane flame is blazing into the mold cavity. Again, to prevent Oxygen absorption by the Silver (otherwise it will "spit" upon solidification). Also note, as this is a safety issue as well as a technical demand, that the mold was pre-heated prior to taking this video by placing the mold on top of the furnace lid. Molten metals being poured into a cold mold can literally "explode" out of the cavity all over you and the surrounding work place, posing a great fire and injury risk....

    here we show a process of pouring a bar commonly called a Dore' bar, depending on the amount of varied ingredients in the flux will determine which kind of metals will be poured,.. this type of mining is common here in the desert southwest because of rare earth metals and platinum groups,.. kind of a shoddy video, sorry about that,.. but i wanted to get it on tape so people could see kind of how it looks to do the process,.. this particular ore came from cracks nearby the ore body through erosion, commonly called caliche', within this outer ore body was little ore cracks with small crevices of quartz, all containing nano particles of gold

  • Precipitating Platinum

    Precipitating Platinum ammonium chloride from Aqua Regia Solution. The source of the Platinum was 16.7 grams of 90/10 Pt/Ir thermocouples. The alloy took 7 hours to completely dissolve in hot diluted AR. I used zinc to precipitate the Pt and Ir together, then treated the resulting black powder with diluted AR again. After the two additional AR digestions, 1.2 grams of black powder remained. I filtered the solution then denoxxed the resulting solution and filmed the video. The Pt salt still has a scarlet tint indicating it still has some Ir in the salt. I'll have to calcine the salt and redissolve the resulting sponge in diluted AR, then precipitate again with ammonium chloride to get the nice canary yellow salt I'm looking for.

The mold was also seasoned prior to taking this video by coating it with a layer of soot from the propane flame. This particular mold was made by me, unfortunately, it seems that i chose the wrong kind of graphite to work with (too porous), hence, the not so perfect surface finish (as you can see, the surface is slightly dimpled). But all in all, still nice result. :-) Here in this video, you can watch the a first Silver Refining steps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZEUcoPDoRI
