By the cyclic voltammetry method, we study acid solutions of saline chemical current sources, analyze their qualitative and quantitative compositions, and perform theoretical analysis of the possibility of extraction of precious metals from the solutions with analyzed compositions. The possibility and expediency of utilization metals with the use of the chemical and electrochemical methods is demonstrated.
