A tiny amount of silver can be dissolved in a strong chloride solution. It's why we dilute AR and filter it before dropping gold.Also. How do chloride solutions get dissolved silver if they don't dissolve silver? People extracting gold only use ap (a chloride solution), so how does the silver get in there before using ar to later refine I wonder?
There should be no silver chloride around by the time one uses ar, yet I often hear of problems with it at that point.
Silver usually gets into AR because a small amount has remained allowed with the gold. When the gold is dissolved, the silver can dissolve as well.
