July 2015 by Chris RalphQ: What amount of silver is considered the best find ever?
Q: I have a question/request regarding some black sand left from my Dad’s prospecting days.
Q: Can you offer any information on proper mining claim procedures?
Any ore grading 32% silver would contain more than 9,000 ounces of silver per ton and be valued at something in the range of $150,000 per ton. Even a few tons of this type of material would be well worth shipping off to a smelter for treatment.
