Exploring Mining Podcast 312 - Silver the Wonder Metal - Exclusive interview with Peter Krauth, Author of 'The Great Silver Bull'


Vancouver, Kelowna, Delta, BC - December 1, 2022 ( Newswire), a global investor news source covering mining and metals stocks releases today's edition of Exploring Mining Podcast, featuring an exclusive interview with silver expert, Peter Krauth discussing silver and why it's a Wonder Metal.

Peter Krauth is the author of the bestselling book The Great Silver Bull

( and editor of the silver-focused investment newsletter Silver Stock Investor ( Krauth has researched, written and invested in silver for more than 20 years, using his extensive industry network to uncover outstanding opportunities. As a precious metals expert, he is a frequent guest contributor to webinars and financial websites such as Kitco and Forbes. He is a regular presenter and moderator at investment conferences.

In this episode we talk about why silver is a 'wonder metal', how clean energy is impacting the demand for silver, how adding silver to your portfolio can lower your risk, and where to start investing in silver.

Peter discusses new data coming out on silver and his findings that support a very good case for adding silver to investors' portfolios.

Krauth tells us "I think what's worth highlighting first, is some recent research by Oxford economics, together with the Silver Institute, looking back over the last 23 years. They wanted to determine whether it made sense to include at least some allocation to silver in a diversified portfolio. What would that do to the overall risk and return of the portfolio? What they noticed was that in an average risk or medium risk portfolio over the last 23 years, with stocks, bonds, commodities, gold, and even stocks and bonds from emerging markets, but if you include silver, the ideal amount in the last 23 years would have been about 5% silver. The silver component, overall absolutely lowered the portfolio's risk and increased its return. "

Continued:" And then they decided, let's see what we think would make sense, looking forward. Oxford economics has its own models for their outlook on the markets in general, looking at what different asset classes are likely to do during inflation etcetera. They also adjust for the fact that they feel silver is undervalued relative to gold, because if you do the ratio of silver to gold prices, the silver prices are very low. So their determination was that based on their forecasts in the next 10 years, it would make sense to have 6%, or even higher holdings in silver in the next decade. "

When discussing the green energy push Peter gives data on one of the biggest cases for silver, which is solar. If you are a green energy investor, silver should be a metal you pay attention to.

"On the industrial side, the single biggest use for silver is solar panels, which is just mind-boggling because solar panels take up 12% of the silver supply every year, about 120 -130 million ounces. And it's growing at a double digit rate right now. The international energy agency says that right now energy electricity from solar only represents about 3% of electricity generated worldwide, and they think that the output their forecast is for electricity from solar over the next eight years to about 2030 should be up over 8.5 times. So, if solar panels right now require 12% of all the silver supplied every year, and then you multiply that by 8.5 times you're at nearly all of silver supply by 2030"
