The Mina Mercury Mine, Nevada

 WOW, Check out that cool Jeep!

  If I had money tell ya what I'd do, I'd go down town and buy a Mercury Mine or two, I'm crazy for that mercury, ya I'm crazy about that mercury.
  That's right the man who worked this mine got a little too much mercury in his system and went on to write that famous song about mercury mining. Years later he was seen in the local hills jumping like a pogo stick yelling "I'm coockoo for Coco-Puffs, coockoo for Coco-Puffs". Just another prime example of what too much success can do to a man.

  It is written that this mine had over 5000 feet of workings and that over 3000 flasks passed through here, now were those flasks of mercury or flasks of whiskey?
