A few months ago, one of my patrons sent me a bunch of old gold jewelry for me to refine. I originally thought that it was going to just be some gold plated stuff, but it turned out to be quite a bit of gold. I was able to purify out all of the gold and then melt them down into some small 24K pure gold bars.

Cu and diluted HNO3 (~30%) will give NO as reduction product, not NO2. ;) NO2 forms only because you do your reaction under air (2NO+O2=2NO2).

I will advice everyone all over the world to stop wasting your money on fake brokers and scammers who promise you instant cash out. it's not as easy as you think. Please try to stay off because you would loose money. People who have lost money are so much and it gives a bad name to real investors. If you really lost alot of money in the name of bitcoin mining and binary option trading because you kept meeting the wrong managers. I work with recovery expert/consultants. I help people recover money they have lost from binary options crypto currency trading and bitcoin investment. You can reach out to me via jonhsmith3371@gmail.com and i will guide you on steps to take to recover all your lost money just in 3 working days.

The value of 81 grams of pure gold is $5,129.85 on September 16, 2020 (based on $1969.83/ounce price) or £3,948.57 Pound sterling. I wonder how much the materials and fuel cost?

how much heavier was the chloroauric acid compared to the equivalent volume of water? it's filled with gold so I'd assume its heavier, it would be interesting to see the true difference though.

Jesus Christ is coming for His people soon brothers and sisters!!! Wake up and look at all the evil in the world and the biblical prophecies being fulfilled around us! REPENT of your sins and ACCEPT (confess with your mouth and believe in your heart) our Lord Jesus Christ as YOUR SAVIOR and receive salvation and eternal life through Him‼️ He died on the cross and rose on the 3rd day for OUR sins! Whether you believe or not judgment comes to all EXCEPT those who put their FAITH in Him. Through Him we are no longer under condemnation but under GRACE! Dont wait until its too late! God bless you all! Amen🧡
