He reported that most highly argentiferous galena required silver to have been coupled with bismuth or antimony to allow a substitution for lead within the lattice under high-temperature conditions.
The mines of Foxdale and Laxey have yielded from time to time for many years immense quantities of argentiferous lead of a high class, at very good profits to the shareholders.
Here argentiferous galena was obtained, and the mine was worked for its silver.
Some of the richer argentiferous galena pockets contained masses of mineral three or four inches in size.
This design provides decisive benefits: Placed on the wound, the argentiferous ointment dressing releases silver ions from its surface on contact with the exudate.
Since ancient times this area was famous for its argentiferous minerals.
Regarding the technical process, treating amorphous slags consist in smashing and washing them in order to pick off argentiferous lead bullets.
The total production to 1926 was about 5,000,000 tonnes of argentiferous galena from around 300 mines and prospects.
These are always argentiferous in a high degree, and their colour varies from light-yellow to pure silver-white.
As already mentioned, lead occurs in British Columbia, mainly in the form of argentiferous galena or silver lead ores.
