I assume you have seen that SA is a silver producer: MMH, PALAMIN and the GOLD MINERS (and PLATINUM MINERS) MMH is vrot (and her silver deposit is under legal attack - well virtually seized by the govt actually.) PALAMIN is a copper play - but the biggest pro rata producer of silver in SA. STILL, silver is hardly relevant in her figures. In the lives of the GOLD (and even more so, PLATINUM,) miners, silver is so tiny as to be irrelevant. A few private tin producers etc produce as a by-product too. And that, to the best of my knowledge, is the story for SA silver.
