Why Silver , Why Now ?

Why Silver Investment? Well there are a few very compelling and fundamental reasons actually. Our world is, quite literally, running out of silver. World demand for silver exceeds annual production and has every year since 1990 -- a total of 14 straight years! Above ground stockpiles of silver are low, shrinking rapidly and approaching zero. Since the end of WWII, for example, the U.S. government -- once the largest stockpiler of silver on the planet -- has dumped billions and billions of ounces of silver onto the world market, effectively depressing silver prices. Today, that government silver hoard is gone... and now the U.S. government is a buyer of silver.

Few primary silver mines are operating due to currently low silver prices -- approximately 75% of newly mined silver is actually a by-product of base metal mining of lead, tin, copper and zinc. Reopening abandoned primary silver mines or developing new mines is a timely and costly process, and is unlikely to occur until silver prices stabilize at a considerably higher price per oz., according to natural resource expert John Myers, editor of widely-read newsletters, "Outstanding Investments" and "Resource Trader Alert".
