The story of silver mining began about 5,000 years ago. Silver was first mined around 3,000 BCE in Anatolia, now located in modern-day Turkey. The precious metal helped early civilizations in the Near East, Ancient Greece to flourish.
Because copper is a highly efficient conduit, it is used in renewable energy systems to generate power from solar, hydro, thermal and wind energy across the world. Copper helps reduce CO2 emissions and lowers the amount energy needed to produce electricity. In many renewable energy systems, there is 12-times more copper being used than in traditional systems to ensure efficiency. Copper is one of the best renewable resources. It is one of the few materials that can be recycled 100 percent over and over again without a loss in performance. Renewable energy sources provide nearly one-quarter of the world's power, and copper plays an important role in making it as efficient as possible with minimal impact on the environment.
