Both underground and open-pit methods are used to mine silver ore. A soft, lustrous transition metal, silver has the highest electrical conductivity of any element and the highest thermal conductivity of any metal. Silver exists naturally in its pure, free form (native silver), as an alloy with gold and other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite. A great amount of silver is produced as a by-product of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining.

Silver is known to be far less expensive than gold and known to be more common, however, above-ground silver is rarer than gold. It is more abundant under the Earth’s surface, and interestingly this makes it harder to mine than gold. It has a wide range of uses, including the making of jewellery and silverware but also the production of various technological devices.
