Quicksilver Is used mnlnly In tho manufacture
of fulminate for explosive caps, of drugs, of
electric appliances nnd scientific apparatus, nnd
in tho recovery of precious metals, especially
gold, by amalgamation. A new use In .Scotland
Is the floating of lights of lighthouses upon a
body of quicksilver. A use in England, In tho
United States nnd possibly elsewhere, is the
coating of ships' bottoms with a pnlnt contain
ing quicksilver to prevent organic growth. Jler
curlc oxldo fred oxldo of mercury) Is tho ac
tive poison In anti-foullng pnlnt successfully
used on ships' bottoms. Tho metul appears to
be little employed In silvering mirrors, as ni
trate of sliver Is now chiefly used for the pur
pose. Increasing use of quicksilver Is probably
to ho expected In the manufacture of electrical
appliances and of fulminates, and tossibly of
paints for protective coatings on metnls.
The demand for quleksiiver for amalgamating
gold and sliver his greatly decreased, as Is well
known, with tho d-creased supply of free mill
ing ores and tho Increased application of nv.-ini.
dntlon to gold and silver ores. Industrial chem
istry nnd Inventive genius nro to be looked to
for Increasing the demand.
