Every variable that constitutes a barrier to converting a resource into inventory makes physical silver and viable production all that more valuable. It will be interesting as the balance between legitimate environmental and safety concerns decreases production how soon JPM/CME will realize they need all the production they can get. Therefore, solely for the almighty dollar the dogs will be called off. This will mean once again US silver mine production will not be enough to supply the Silver Eagle production. Recyclers better get busy! WE BUY SILVER HERE!!!!
