Silver - Wikipedia

Silver is an extremely soft, ductile and malleable transition metal, though it is slightly less malleable than gold. Silver crystallizes in a face-centered cubic latt with bulk coordination number 12, where only the single 5s electron is delocalized, similarly to copper and gold.

Group: group 11

The rich silver minerals pyrargyrite and stephanite boost the silver content of this bonanza grade ore. The Silver Peak mining district in Esmerelda County, Nevada was very productive in the late 1800s, but continued through the early 1900s, and is still a site for ongoing open pit gold mining to this day.
