I googled Heat Conductivity of Materials, and got lots of good hits. Have a look at the Hyperphysics and Wikipedia pages, and let us know if you have specific questions about that information.

It just gives information about the values of the element's conductivity coefficient
With no explanation of what make some elements have a high one while other don't,

besides I prefer your help since the internet is full of a variety of info with lots of different levels so it's kind of difficult to me to pull out suitable physics information from the internet.
