    Precious Metals

    Hi Scrappers.

    Got a load of various boards to depopulate and just wanted to check what I should be looking for regarding precious metals found in the smaller components.

    As well as gold pins, IC chips, flatpacks and tactile switches, I intend keeping MLCCs, thick film resistors, crystal oscillators and any Tantalum capacitors I find.

    Am I missing anything? What about MLCIs for example, do they contain anything worthwhile?

    I wouldn't really worry about the resistors, you'll be picking them forever, very little value and no-one really goes for ruthenium, it's too difficult to recover.

    nah that's just about covers it, nothing in inductors.
