The first data on the silver content in volcanics of the West Siberian Plate are presented, and data on basalts of the Siberian Platform are supplemented. The silver contents in all studied rocks do not depend on the fractionation of initial melts and contamination of the host rocks and average 0.07–0.10 ppm. The high silver contents can be associated only with sulfide formation.
