Silver mining Wikipedia

Silver-bearing ore typically contains very little silver, with much higher percentages of copper and lead. As such, most silver produced is refined from sulfide ores such as galena (lead) or chalcopyrite (copper) which contain small amounts of silver. Many of these ores are mined for their value as sulfide ores, and silver is extracted as a valuable by-product, however, some ores are mined
