Endeavour Silver: How Silver Is Mined, Part I
The terrific team at Endeavour Silver just contacted me to bring my attention to an educational video they've developed about the silver mining process. Part II will be out later this month, and presumably will focus on the extraction process, while Part I represents a terrific, basic breakdown of the staking, modeling, and assaying processes.
I recommend this video to anyone invested in the precious metals space, as informational resources of this type that are both broadly accessible and relevant to investors are as scarce as the targeted metals. I personally found the portion dealing with the assay process fascinating! Although my background in archaeology has afforded me some facility in interpreting drill target selection, drill results, modeling techniques, etc., I had never encountered such a detailed breakdown of how the assaying process is conducted for gold and silver.
The video is embedded below for your convenience, but I recommend going to Endeavour's homepage to view it, since it opens conveniently in a separate browser window.
Along with the shares of the exciting growth company that produced the video, I am delighted to recommend this video to all of you.
Please let me know what you think, and which portions you find particularly interesting or informative. I look forward to passing your comments to Endeavour's staff.
Endeavour Silver is my third-largest equity holding.
