Quicksilver Mine

 The New Almaden Quicksilver Mine in Santa Clara County, California is the oldest and most productive quicksilver (eg: mercury) mine in the United States[4]. The site was known to the Ohlone Indians for its cinnabar long before a Mexican settler discovered the ores in 1820. By the time they were identified as mercury, the mine was perfectly timed to supply the California Gold Rush.[5] The mine ran intermittently after 1927 and eventually closed. It was purchased by the county and is now part of Almaden Quicksilver County Park.
