    Extract Gold from your Old Computers and Phones
    Today gold reached another record level high that its costing 28,540 Rupees for 10grams of gold. In the international markets, like New york Commodity Exchange its costing $1900 for each Ounce (31.1 grams).
    In India its must to purchase gold for all major occasions and weddings. So, i was thinking how to mine gold. With a little bit of searching i found out that gold is used in most mother boards of computers and other electronic items. The computer industry uses several hundred tons of the element every year. Traces of gold is found in almost all computer components–processors, motherboards, extension cards, memory DIMMs, and so on. Of course, the amounts used in each part are very small. But with the price of gold reaching all time high in recent years, it’s becoming more and more economically-viable to recover gold from old electronic and computer components than to mine it.
    Gold is found in numerous places on a motherboard: IDE connectors, PCI Express slot, PCI, AGP, ISA, and other ports, jumper pins, the processor socket, and DIMM (SIMM on older motherboards) slots.
    All of these connectors are often covered with a fine layer of gold a few microns thick, deposited by flashing or plating.
