Precious Metals Recovery

Precious Metals Recovery

MGH will value and offer competitive rates for unused or scrap computer boards, in order to recycle or refine them for any precious metals they may contain.

Scrap gold can be found in many different computer boards and integrated circuits. Gold is an excellent conductor of electricity and highly resistant to corrosion, which makes it an attractive proposition for manufacturers to use in contact points within small computer chips.

Raw material resources like these precious metals will not last forever, and these metals are too valuable to waste. 

What Do We Look For?

Using the latest technology, our process will strip the boards of any components that have metallic properties present in a controlled laboratory environment. Examples of computer board scrap, and their materials, include:

  1.  Integrated circuits that contain gold
  2. Re-useable circuits that can be re-distributed
  3. Gold-plated plugs or connectors that may be refined
  4. Other substrates that contain precious metals that can be treated as a payable material
  5. Edge connectors that can be chemically refined.

If you are a business or supplier who accumulates scrap computer boards and are ready to ‘cash in’ then contact MGH.
