Mithril was a precious silvery metal, stronger than steel but much lighter in weight, which was mined by the Dwarves in the mines of Khazad-dûm.

 Mithril - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Given the presence of magic, mithril might not be a solid metal, but a composite instead; such as metal foam or a conventional metal with carbon nanotube reinforcement.
Mithril, or similarly spelled names, has been used in other fictional contexts as a strong and semi-magical metal, or simply as a name for a project or device, due to the Tolkien Estate not putting the term under copyright, as it did with "Hobbit".
Truesilver is a random spawn from a mining node normally used for mithril, as is silver from tin or gold from iron.

The City of the Mithril Golem was founded at the conclusion of the Divine War; it sits atop a cliff where Corean's mighty mithril golem was deposited, supposedly for the purpose of defending those dedicated to the god who would later build a city there.

Mithril is somewhat divided, however, and in ways more than merely geographical.

 GreenBooks.TheOneRing.net™ | Special Guest | The Science of Middle-earth -- Making Mithril
On the level of the story, mithril is as much a fantasy creation of The Lord of the Rings as elves and hobbits, and as such does not require a prosaic identification with anything in the modern world.
Mithril is obviously a metal, and metals come in three varieties: if they are not chemical elements, they are alloys in which various elements are mixed together to suit the purposes of the engineer; or they are chemical compounds -- substances in which the constituent chemical elements are combined in fixed ratios.
Tolkien's mithril is nothing so prosaic as an alloy: it always seems to have a distinct identity, and properties recognizable as such down the ages -- this would not be true of an alloy, whose properties can change according to the recipe used by the metallurgist.

 Warning About Mithril Armor! - DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ Forums
Mithril armor has a bug, as you all might be aware Mithril lowers the armor to the next lowest class of armor, thus reducing the Armor Check Penalty and increasing the Max Dex Bonus.
This is just so anyone wearing mithril will check their attack bonus, really easy to check if your effect, remove your armor and watch your attack bonus, if it jumps back up, its hurting you.
In 3.5 DandD, even though mithril armor counts as one category lighter for purposes of mobility, you still have to be proficient with the base armor type or take the armor check penalty on attack rolls.
