The facts about silver mining
Most silver is mined out of Mexico and Peru, as well as a few sources found in Australia, Poland and Russia. Interestingly, only 30% of silver is mined from silver mines, with 70% obtained as a by-product from other mining operations; most people don’t realise this; nor do they understand how detrimental silver mining is on the environment.
Mining destroys the world around us; not only does it churn up the earth we live on, it releases pollutants into the atmosphere. It typically takes tons of rock to be uprooted and displaced to yield just a few grams of this precious material. We dig away, with little thought of how our actions may leave devastating long-term effects on our planet. Miles of land, habitats, animals and plants are displaced in the process. We’re a business that cares about these things and we have consciously developed a brand that resists these actions.
