As silver is a precious metal often used for coins and bullion, its mining has historically often been lucrative. Furthermore, half of silver’s demand comes from the industrial sector. It is the best electrical and thermal conductor of all metals, making it highly valued for electrical applications. One of the most challenging aspects of silver mining is the extraction of the ore, as silver and its host rock can be very heavy. In addition to being in high industrial demand, silver is also highly valued by investors because it shares many of the same investment characteristics as gold.
