Today, silver is sought as a valuable and practical industrial commodity and as an investment. It is a brilliant grey-white metal that is soft and malleable. The explosion in the production of these various base-metal sources throughout the 20th century led to an increasing output of silver-bearing residue and ultimately, refined silver. Improvements in electro refining techniques allowing for the easy separation of silver and other base metals from refinery slimes, thus providing an increasingly important source of silver.

Silver surrounds us. And every day, from our commute to work, to our cell and smart phones, to the lighting in our workplace and homes, to our computers, silver is an important element which makes our lives more convenient and energy efficient.
