Gold Recovery for Everyday Items

Gold is one of the rarest and most valuable metals in the Earth’s crust. Most of the world’s supply is mined, but recycling has been gaining momentum in an age of mounting environmental concerns and heightened price volatility. Now, let’s look at the different sources of gold scraps and how we can recycle the world’s oldest asset.

Your home and office can be a rich minefield for gold recycling. These are the sources:

We purchase gold and gold-plated jewelleries for recycling based on industry proven assay methods, which include:

Electronics Components

Most of household and office electronics contain gold and other precious metals. Instead of disposing broken computers and other household appliances, recycling them would be the more ecologically responsible thing to do. Components like circuit boards, capacitors, transformers, processor chips (CPU) can be dismantled and either be recycled or refurbished.

BR Metals is developing our own proprietary gold recovery technique with reliable recovery rates and much lesser damage to the environment than leaching. You can expect nothing less than a smooth fuss-free recycling process with white glove customer service and competitive pricing. These are the components we collect:

  •     PCB connectors
  •     PCB pins
  •     Gold bonding wire
  •     Gold plated wire
  •     Pins and frames
  •     RF gold plated connectors
  •     Sockets
  •     Gold wire
  •     Pin receptacles
  •     Telecommunications motherboard pins

Our Gold Recovery Process

Currently, we are working on perfecting our in-house gold recovery process. Like Platinum Group Metals recycling, we are committed to delivering the highest quality in fire assay and laboratory recovery of gold to ensure that our recovered gold is of the highest purity and value to produce the best results for our clients.


One of the biggest challenges we face today is waste. According to the United Nations, the world’s population will reach 9.2 billion by 2050 – and human waste is also expected to increase exponentially. The issue of waste management is becoming an urgent problem to resolve. BR Metals is committed to conversing valuable resources for our future generations through providing sustainability solutions.
