Silver Refining

Hello out there! It's been a while for me on this board, but I lurk now and then still. Life got in the way for a few years and has had me pretty busy... As it happens now and then.

Anyhow, I have a small project. I recently picked up some scrap silver solder which I believe is 11.25% silver (the label is scratched off and it says X1.25% sil, so I am hoping for the best)

Anyhow, the plan is to melt a small ingot and see if someone at a scrap yard can shoot it with an XRF which should give me a close % silver.

Is there any good way to extract the silver on my own? If not, can someone recommend a good refinery? It's 25# of solder... So I am hoping for 2+ pounds of silver. Maybe wishful thinking and it's worth more to sell it as solder!

Thanks!

ADK

Thank you both and thanks for the "welcome back". It's been a while. Life gets busy I suppose. Silver seems to be on sale right now, too.

I'm back in!

Thanks and I'll let you know how the refining goes!
