Ever Wonder How Silver is Mined - Making Silver Dore Bars

Posted On: Thursday, February 16, 2012

Most precious metal investors likely have no idea on the actual mining process for gold and silver.  The following Discovery Channel, How its Made, segment gives an excellent step by step look at silver mining.  Silver Mining/Making Dore Bar - Discovery Channel.

Obviously, Silver Dealer's like Gainesville Coins sell silver bars after they have been further refined to a .999 level of purity.  Watching the mining process before this final stage is certainly interesting. 

People that watch this video may not realise that the gold-silver ratio in nature is 16.  Watching the actual mining process for silver shows the extra effort required to mine gold.  Hopefully the Discovery Channel will do a similar segment for Gold Mining.

The 100 ounce Sunshine Mint Bar at as low as $0.79 over spot.
