    Re: Can I sell my mercury

    You know, you can't get rid of that stuff so be very careful. If you spill even the tinniest drop on the floor, it will roll around until it finds a crack to go even lower towards ground. I would start by calling a scrap metals dealer, he could steer you to a buyer or let you know if you need a permit to even have it....Dentists use to use it all the time putting in Silver filings, so some of us have it in our mouths right now, I assume

    There are federal laws dealing with the storage and disposal of mercury. You realize, I hope, that any contact with your skin and it enters your bloodstream and stays there(stored in your liver, I think). Also, if you evaporate it, don't breath the fumes because this will over time, like skin contact, kill you.It has pretty much been removed from any dental use, but if you are getting up there in years, yep, it's in your fillings. It is a very dangerous substance so please be careful...

    This is an OLD post & my Response is not meant as a dig on austin.

    But comments like this always make me laugh

    so.... It'll kill you if old age doesn't get you first ?

    I had some fillings done with silver mercury amalgam just last year. Store your mercury under a cover of water and wear latex or nitrile gloves when handling it. Use caution and always work over a containment vessel. Never evaporate it unless you use the proper type of retort and know how to do it safely. Mercury gets a bad rap. It is like any other hazardous substance, be prepared, equipped and educated on how to use it safely and it is a valuable tool for recovering gold and silver.
