New Almaden Quicksilver Mine has been designated an historical landmark by American Society of Metals
Discovered in November 1845, it was the first workable quicksilver mine in North America and preceded the Coloma Gold Discovery of January 1848 by 27 months. The mine supplied much of our industrial requirements for mercury for well over a century.
