I throw these away.

Silver Ore isn't even worth the time unless you're dead set on getting it yourself. You're better off buying it from the AH, where it's always cheap, much to my woe (as a miner), or just getting it from the NPC. If you're going into goldsmithing, 500 gil an ore is something you should love.

When I'm mining, I throw them away. They just take up a spot where Darksteel/Mythril/Platinum/Iron/Zinc/etc could be.
Best place to mine this?

I am getting ready to start skilling goldsmithing with silver ores, but I hate trying to mine it, as it seems to be fairly rare... My usual method of mining for ore I need involves mining until my inventory is full, then selling all the ore I don't need in order to buy the ore I do need. However, this takes quite a bit of time, and I would love to be able to pull silver ore at a better rate from somewhere. Any suggestions as to where the best location for this is? I would really appreciate your help ;)

I've just picked up mining not so long ago, and in Yughott Grotto, I mined about 3 of these in only 20 minutes of mining. In Zeruhn though, over several weeks of mining, I only got a single silver ore, so I'd go with Yughott Grotto personally, but I've never tried anywhere else too much. Good luck and I hope that helps.

It's been some months since you posted... but I'll answer just 'cause I'm bored. Probably the best place would be Palborough if Asura is anything like Lakshmi. Gusgen is usually overrun with RMTs and zeruhn is just... zeruhn. Palborough won't have many people in it, and you get mythril too, also for goldsmithing. Anyways, you won't mine all that much, along with all the other ores. So, I'd keep doing what you've been doing, or find another way to make cash.
what drops these

These do drop off of stone eaters around bastok and carrion worms near sandoria. Additionally they do indeed drop off of the rock eaters in Konschtat Highlands.
Silver ore however is rather rare in comparison to copper and zincs dropping, although there has been a time i got an earth crystal, flint stone, copper zinc and silver ores from one worm.

Tunnel worms for the most part only drop copper ores.
The next steps up drop copper ores, zinc ore, silver ores. Only do higher worms drop other ores, and more often than not they are NM worms that drop the rocks/rare ores, such as the Morion Worm or Big Mouth Billy.

Great to farm these guys.

I dont know if its because it's rare but I've never seen Giant Grubs in Dangruf Wadi drop silver ore. I dont want to say they don't drop it because I don't know for a fact but I do farm worms there ALOT and all I've ever gotten off them is zinc. But if youre in need of zinc ore its a great place to farm it!!

I'll confirm that. I've farmed the worms there for hours and have NEVER gotten a single silver ore. Now, you can steal silver beastcoins from the goblin leechers in the back of Dangruf Wadi however...

Picked one up off a tunnel worm in W. Ronfaure today.

its more of a rare drop from most low lvl to mid lvl worms (L0- ~30) that i know for a fact. Bastok seems to be the best drop cause of the worm population there.
which worms?
