what your talking about is Precious metal refining. 

And Yes I do this bud, I gave a lot of tips to BackYard Scrapping on YouTube years ago. He does this on a regular basis. 

I do not offer tips anymore because the process is very dangerous. BUT I can help clear up anything your stuck on. 

The basics are you first need to refine any silver... This means a .925 spoon for instance, you will refine it to a liquid forum. 

then you bring it to a powder form. You then put it in a silver cell to further refine it as it will still have some base metals in it. 

after that you are pretty good. 

But please for PETES sake, be careful, your playing with extremely nasty and life threating chemicals. And one inhale could result in death!!! 

This is why I will NOT tell you how to, but can help if your stuck, and only on a cryptic basis.

That will not work. 

once you smelt the silver and try something like Flux ( Borax ) you are still hitting the same temperatures as CU and other metals. You might get some metal out but by no means the majority. 

You would have to go down the AR route for this to be effective.
