Why Silver & Copper

Both silver and copper are absolutely essential in today’s modern world – not only in the recent innovations in alternative energy, but also in computers, tablets, cell phones, electrical components, air and water purifiers, and the aerospace industry. The solar power industry alone uses about 5 percent of the world’s annual silver supply; the average car produced in North America has as much as 55 pounds of copper in it, with double that amount needed for hybrid vehicles; a single wind turbine can contain 335 tons of steel and 4.7 tons of copper. Put simply, what we’ll mine from Rock Creek is what the world needs.
