Depressed Silver Prices Presenting Bigger Opportunity Than Gold?

Silver Prices Presenting Bigger Opportunity Than GoldAs prices for silver and gold started falling in 2013, my prediction was that lower prices for the precious metals would cause miners to cut back on the exploration and development of new mines, eventually stunting supply.
