Total supply of 911 million Ag ounces -

Demand is as follows:

Industrial applications, 409 million Ag ounces -

Photography, 165 million Ag ounces -

Jewelry & Silverware, 250 million Ag ounces -

Coins & medals, 41 million Ag ounces -

Additional investment, only 47 million Ag ounces -

Mine supply is less than industrial demand -

The difference is mostly met through government sales
from India, and scrap recycling -

Scrap metal recovered was far greater -
than investment demand, and investment demand -
was a tiny 5% of the market in 2005 -
There was no investment demand for the ten years prior -
as investors were mostly selling -

Investor demand is really only just beginning -

Investors have tens of trillions worth of fiat
paper money -

about 100,000 times more than the size -
of the Silver market -

Even a tiny interest in Silver will cause -
the price to skyrocket -
