The two independent experiments corroborate the .005 g of silver per CD figure.

Without manoobullation today's silver price should be stable at about $600 and gold at about $5000 per ounce.
During the long awaited correction, spot price may overshoot to a four digit value (in today's USD worth).
At $3100 an ounce, silver would be $100 a gram, and one could extract 50 worth of precious from each old CD.
That would make recycling worth it.
I have a few hundred old CD-Rs that I could process when the price is right.
