Silver, above ground, is more rare than gold! There is seven times as much gold above ground as compared to silver!

Upside Explosion in Silver once it breaks $21: James Turk

"While gold is moving higher, I am really focused on the $21 level in silver to be hurdled because that's when the upside explosion that we have been talking about is really going to start." ,   James Turk , he makes a good point about how much silver is actually left in the ground. I have long suspected that it is no longer 16/1 and more like the 8/1-12/1 you mentioned. Still, I have not seen any figures as to what is still there. Stands to reason though since, as u point out, silver is close to the surface and gold is deep. Everyday there is more gold and less silver available. Roll on the 8/1 ratio. Some of us will be partying like rock stars! Absolutely, same applies to gold jewellery..there is more silver utensils and coinage above ground than gold too.However the 16:1 ratio in the ground is debatable but it's safe to say that the ratio is probably closer to between 8:1 - 12:1 in reality as silver supplies in ground are drying up a little (as it is found closer to the surface than gold and has been easier to obtain) therefore most of the available silver has already been found at this point.
Silver Shortage
GOLD is the money of the KINGS, SILVER is the money of the GENTLEMEN, BARTER is the money of the PEASANTS, but DEBT is the money of the SLAVES!!!
