Mercury Mine Remediation Program

From the 1850’s into the 1970’s mercury ore was mined in the upper Cache Creek and Putah Creek watersheds. Mercury mined in this region was used throughout much of the Sierra Nevada in the gold mining process. Mercury amalgamates small particles of gold. Heating later separates the gold from the mercury.
