Hi guys,

I have been in the world's biggest silver mine in the middle ages yesterday (historic silver mine). If you come to Austria, don't miss to visit the silver mine in Schwaz/Austria:
  
  

I was really amazed by the mine tour. I have taken some silver ore samples to test my detector. Interestingly, it contains 0.5 .. 0.8 % silver only (and approx. 30 % copper, which can be seen as azurite and malachite minerals). Lead and tin is also contained in the silver ore.
 excited

Cheers,
Aziz

Has any further modern exploration been done to look for extensions of the ore body?
Do you know if the ore contains any gold?

Hi Doug,

yes, late explorations has been done (still a lot of silver there). But they can't compete with South Americans and Australians with open field mining. It's expensive to work the mine. No investors found till now.

BTW, I was vague in mineral composition. I've found more detailed info:
Cu (Kupfer) 35,00 – 41,00%
Sb (Antimon) 14,00 – 22,00%
As (Arsen) 4,00 – 8,00%
Zn (Zink) 3,00 – 8,00%
Hg (Quecksilber) 0,40 – 8,00%
Fe (Eisen) 0,80 – 3,00%
Ag (Silber) 0,30 – 0,85%
Mn (Mangan) 0,20 – 1,00%
Bi (Wismut) 0,15 – 1,00%
Pb (Blei) 0,09 – 1,00%
Ni (Nickel) 0,00 – 0,20%
Cd (Cadmium) 0,00 – 0,01%

PS: BTW, a lot of poison minerals.
