How To Scrap Old Cell Phones For *Gold Recovery

Short video showing how and what to scrap in old cell phones and prepare them for gold and other precious metals recovery.

Also see the USGS pdf report “Recycled Cell Phones—A Treasure Trove of Valuable Metals” (2006):

But do not forget to adjust the prices to gold’s current value.

The report suggests an avarage gold content of 0.034g per cell phone:
At 2005 – 0.034g was worth 0.4$
At todays prices (1700$ an ounce) – 0.034 is worth 1.85$

Will scrapping cell phones make you rich? probably not.
But it will make you some extra cash.
