Abstract

The historical mines of Almadén, which were actively functioning for over two millennia, produced a third of the world’s mercury — a total of 7,500,000 flasks (Hernández, 1995). After mining and metallurgical production ceased in 2003, the mines were turned into a museum. Efforts are currently underway to have the mines declared a World Heritage Site.
