Yeah the EV, solar panels, medical, computing and "green" tech etc. will all play a part in this, apparently a Tesla has 3-5kg of silver in it. At work recently I found an old national geographic and it had a 30 page article on silver. I should bring it home and maybe scan it in. Quite interesting. So you're saying the true value is only related to the dollar cost of mining production? And that the above ground stockpiles keep the price relatively stable? Supply and demand dictates the price will go up as you are saying. Yes I agree about silver going higher than gold, its a more volatile market and usually follows gold when gold rises.
