Galena is an ore of both lead and silver. It is the only source of lead. It is found as veins within a wide range of locations: granite, limestone, and all igneous extrusive layers and metamorphic layers.
Since galena is considered an ore of silver, it can be used in the creation of billon and electrum just as easily as native silver. While it will not produce a lead bar during such a reaction, it can still be worthwhile to use it this way for electrum due to lead having such a low value.
Galena can be used to make several types of metal bars at a smelter:
- Lead bars, with a 50% chance of an additional silver bar
- Electrum bars - with native gold
- Billon bars - with native copper, malachite or tetrahedrite
