Idaho Silver Miners Come to Aid of Tsunami Victims
March 2005 by Paul BoringThe Bunker Hill Mine is doing its part to help tsunami victims by sending crates of bandages impregnated with silver to Indonesia.

We’re always out there looking, checking, researching and trying to locate a new prospect or deposit. It’s always a question as to where to start. Some days we head down to the river to do some panning, sluicing or dredging.
