Anybody still using mercury?


Well-known member
Remember using Mercury for concentrates in a tumbler in the 1980's per the mining books of the time. Work well with clean (acid and fire) concentrates

I remember in the 60s a well known local restaurant used to clean its cash coins in a mercury solution. I do not know if those were silvers or clads but it was in the 60s. Shiniest dang coins in town! Probably not enough on them to hurt you but you sure knew when you had when of their coins!!!!

Probably hard to find these days. Or overly regulated. Remember the days when you could buy dynamite in our hardware/farm stores.
