From what I remember the Chinese threatened to cut back exports. But it seems that I also remember some huge supply being found off the shore of Japan. Now it's all about mining it. There was also some other news about another huge supply being found somewhere else outside China.

Silver on sale, 28% off; Maybe I'll buy more.
