In the United States, there are silver mines in 16 states. Most of the silver comes from Nevada, Arizona, and Idaho. *When Silver was discovered in Nevada, it caused an event called "Silver Rush" in 1859.*When it was discovered in The United States, Silver was called "Comstock Lode" which was named after Henry T.
