More guesses, More of a chance that someones guess may just be better than my guess, maybe there is still a chance someone could actually come up with an answer to this mystery.

My guess is that my guess is still in the lead to be the winning number.

New entries to this contest will have some hurdles and obstacles to overcome.

They have to enter the contest, they will also have to get closer to the correct weight than the other members of the forum, but now they also have to have a better guess than mine.

Now that my guess is in the contest, I can just sit back and wait for the results. Those poor members who do not cast their vote --will not win (just making my chances that much better), and those who have already voted can relax somewhat since they have their votes in, their only obstacle Now is to beat my vote.

What do you call a deer with no eyes?

A no eyed deer.

What do you call a deer with no legs and no eyes?

Still, no eyes deer.

I still have no eyes deer. But I will stick with my original guess.

If you do not post your guess, you will never beat my guess.
Those who have posted and joined in on the fun still have a chance to beat my guess, and better yet, maybe be the winner of the contest.

You will never beat my guess and take hold of the silver prize unless you post your guess.

There is still time, do you feel as lucky as I feel?

if so then post your lucky guess, who knows, this could be your lucky day to get a little of that silver to put in yer poke.

Hi Folks :-)
I have been following this thread for a while, enjoying the guesses.
But since we are encouraged to guess, even by some our esteemed moderators, I'll participate as well ;-)

I'll send this wild guess over the pond just for the fun of it.

So here is my reasoning:
The solution looks quite saturated, which are supposed to be 6.8g/ml * 1100ml appr 750g (ish)
AuCl3 divided by saturation grade, lets say 3/4 saturated, which gives 562,5 g AuCl3

This will in turn give 562.5/303.325 = 1.85*197 = 365.3 grams, then subtract the X factor,
and voila my guess arrives at 336.6g give or take a bit :-D

At the end of the day, my guess is waay out there or the only one close so far ;-)
Have a fantastic day all :mrgreen:
Best Regards PoA

My Primary language are not English so language errors may occur, please do correct me whenever needed :-)

Alright, my guess, based partly on estimation from solution color, then reverting to nice round numbers is:
7 ozt, or 217.721g

Thanks!

Seems like some of our members are shy, or just allergic to silver.


The more votes the more fun and the more we all win, so join in the fun, even if you have a tendency of bouts of Argentum hypoallergenic.

Wow, that is what makes the forum the best, so we all win, I knew my guess was lucky (if only in some part).

Just as our participation in conversation of our combined curiosity and interest, everyone sharing and joining in with their two bits, we all win something better than silver.

At least I won more from this than silver.

Thank every one of you for being a part of the forum, it is my hope that your guess will be called out loud as the winner of the silver.

Those who have been allergic to silver or afraid to speak out, then join in with the conversations of the forum, we all learn from each other, you learn from us, and we need you to join in before we can learn from you and your experiences.

Some of us may not get silver but we can get something better by helping each other.
