Concerning Thrift Store Prospecting Nitric Process CD
As Megan travelled the Gold Prospectors of America Association's show circuit, she was always buttonholed and thoroughly quizzed by individuals, old, young, greenhorn or wily prospector, yes, even beach- combers, garbage collectors, detectorists, confirmed junkers, and other recyclers.

They all stop at her printer's type tray filled with a rather comprehensive sampling of gold plated items which dominated her display. This particular nitric process methodology on the accompanying CD of removal and filtering is effective on most of the displayed samples.

Many have watched in amazement as she demonstrated a rather simple, effective, BASIC method for removing the "easy gold" from various plated objects, all the types of "collectors" which have already been gathered during their "frugal lifetimes!"

Would you believe that Refuse Collectors up and down the West Coast have been pulling valuable precious metals items out of weekly collections for years? They've been aware all along that "this stuff was worth something," but until meeting Megan Rose, haven't known where to start or how to begin.

They line up at her exhibits to buy this manual and kit and to ask questions!

Megan Rose has put this information on a CD, including precautions for
Thrift Store Prospector's Book w/Kit buyer's benefit only, for no extra charge! IF you are
convinced you are equipped for and can handle the caustic process using nitric acid, then
this Nitric Process CD you receive with Thrift Store Prospecting is for you.

Follow the directions to the letter and use plenty of ventilation!!!
