    Only a tiny fraction of the matetial you retrieved is gold, and none of it was in a useful state - you won't even be able to sell it.

    To retrieve the gold properly is a very hazardous process, involving hideously strong acids with highly toxic fumes, and should not be tried at home, and not even in a lab, unless you have training in the proper handling of such substances.

    I have detailed a instructable which makes this process safe, although, it is still dangerous and has many hazards present, some of which wont manifest for years after making a mistake..

    I agree. Salvaging electronics for metals is detrimental to your health.

    comments during the video would be helpful, identifying which components are gold, if any of the other components are useful, etc.
