Since galena does, in fact, contain traces of silver, this is quite viable. Here's my recommendation, however: use an electrochemical reaction to extract your silver. If you can crush the metal enough, you'll be able to dissolve it in water. From there, set up an anode-cathode-salt bridge battery (a high school chemistry textbook should help) and run the reaction that way. Alternatively, you could boil off the lead, but I highly discourage this since lead is a neurotoxin and nobody wants a boiling hot neurotoxin metal floating around.
