Scrap circuit board metal price sinks in October

The average value of metals commonly found in scrap circuit boards was down by a dime in October, continuing a slide from the previous month.

The scrap circuit board index, which measures the value of commodity metals proportionally weighted to their share in a pound of scrap circuit boards, declined to $6.52 per pound in October. Copper prices stabilized last month, but slumping prices for gold, silver and other precious metals dragged the index lower.

 

The scrap circuit board index represents the full metallic values of boards over time and are not the recycling values, as those values do not include the costs involved in actually extracting metal from boards, including freight, sampling charges, assay assessments, smelting, refining, process loss, return on investment, and penalties for various elements, including beryllium, bismuth and nickel.

These values are for the estimated intrinsic metal content of recovered PC boards. Some consumers label such material as mid-value. Lower-value scrap includes monitor and television boards. Higher-value scrap includes motherboards as well as network and video cards.
