    This is unlikely in my opinion unless you are highly connected to the mine. You will also not be receiving a retail form as the mine simply produces ore.

    You would have better luck if you had an account with the refinery.

    A friend of mine does some gold recovery from tailings and because of his account with the refinery he can buy directly at just over spot from them.... (The refinery produce retail bars for the mint)

    Mines primarily produce & sell mineral concentrate to refiners. There are very rare cases where a silver mining company will produce actual silver, but they generally don't deal with the public directly.

    Default No you can't

    Mines make dore bars, not silver.

    Well, although a refiner, I get the idea from their site that Penoles also owns
    mines so they are about as close to being a mine you can buy from as you
    are gonna get since they are a vertically integrated company.

    Unfortunately, you need to order 300,000 ounces at a time as Jason Hommel
    put on his site in the last few days. So unless you've got about $3,000,000
    to drop into it you're not gonna get to buy direct. ^_-
