What We Recycle and Refine: Gold

For most of human history, gold has been one of the most valuable elements on earth. Gold is a noble metal, one of the least reactive elements and highly resistant to corrosion. It is also a good conductor of electricity. It is used in electronics and wiring, jewelry, dentistry and, of course, as currency and bullion.
