Silver - also important in medicine

Silver, an industrial and jewellery raw material, is not only important in the form of coins and bars for investment purposes, but also in medicine.

For example, the University of Arkansas has received almost half a million US dollars for research purposes. The aim is to explore the antimicrobial effects of silver. The effect of silver nanoparticles on E. coli bacteria is the exciting thing. The antibacterial effect of silver should be increased.

A Greek surgeon now produced silver-plated surgical instruments using a 3d printer, which do not require sterilization. Another very interesting new antibacterial invention.

Silver is also being experimented with in the military field. An ultra-thin coating of silver is supposed to make invisible to infrared cameras and thus remove heavy metal armour or thermal blankets. In addition, the processed silver nanoparticles ensure that infrared light is absorbed. This invention was even granted a US patent.

In addition, however, it is primarily the so-called green revolution that needs silver. Electric vehicles, fuel cells and batteries cannot do without the precious metal. Therefore, an investment in silver companies such as MAG Silver or Endeavour Silver should certainly not be a bad idea.

Endeavour Silver - - already owns four producing silver mines in Mexico in addition to promising exploration projects. Soon there will be five, as the Terronera concession area in the Mexican state of Jalisco is making good progress on the preliminary feasibility study (up to 1,297 grams silver and 0.9 grams gold per tonne rock) thanks to excellent drilling results. Endeavour Silver intends to produce a total of ten to eleven million ounces of silver equivalent this year.

MAG Silver - - owns 44 percent of the Juanicipio project in Mexico, partner Fresnillo holds 56 percent. Production is scheduled to start in the first half of 2020. MAG Silver President and CEO George Paspalas is pleased with the progress of the project. Development underground is already well advanced and construction of the surface infrastructure is now beginning.
