Silver Ore Mining

in Silver
Silver ore is a type of ore that can be obtained through the Mining skill in various places.
The Silver Ore Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of about $4.37 billion in 2009-10, compared with $3.50 billion in 2004-05. Revenue is expected to rebound by 19% in 2009-10 on the back of much higher metal prices, after falling by an estimated 39.2% in 2008-09, when metal prices slumped.
Most silver is produced from the silver-bearing lead mineral, called galena. Some also is produced from copper and gold mining. Silver is recovered when crude lead is refined to high purity.
Silver ore Mining includes the development of mine sites and the on-site processing of the ore into a concentrate or, more commonly.
Most of silver (lead-zinc and/or copper) mines are highly mechanised, underground operations. Ore is drilled and blasted in large volumes and transferred to underground rock crushers by large loaders and trucks. The crushed ore is then hoisted to the surface in skips or driven directly to the surface by truck via a spiral access tunnel (decline).
Most of the silver has been a byproduct of mining other metals, such as copper (Copperopolis), tungsten (Pine Creek mine in Inyo County), or gold. However, there have been mines where silver was the principal product.
Silver mining was a driving force in the settlement of world, with major booms for silver and associated minerals (lead, mostly) in the galena ore silver is most commonly found in.
This Silver ore Mining industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in developing the mine site, mining, and/or beneficiating (i.e., preparing) ores valued chiefly for their silver content. Establishments primarily engaged in transformation of the silver into bullion or dore bar in combination with mining activities are included in this industry.
