Where to find silver in Fallout 76

Silver in the game can be created by using items considered to be scrap that can be transformed into the desired ore. To do this, you'll need to find plates, bowls, forks, spoons or any other item that can be turned into silver and make your way to a Chemical Station to start producing it.

This type of thing is easier to find near dining areas, but other types of scrap that also work as raw materials for the item you want are available in the area around the Whitesprings Golf Club. However, although it's an excellent place to find silver in Fallout 76, the place is full of Feral Ghouls so it's important to stay alert and be careful. These Ghouls themselves usually show up with scrap metal, which can make your life a lot easier.
