what are some easy ways to melt galena? Answered
I have found some Galena, an alkali metal ore containing silver and other metals, and am trying to melt it down to extract the silver to use in jewelry making. I have tried to melt some with a mapp gas torch with no success, it does not seem to heat enough that I can seperate the metals. Does anyone know of any cheap and easy solutions to extracting the silver without haveing to build a furnace.
