Mercury is used primarily in the manufacture of industrial chemicals and for electrical and electronic applications. It is used in some thermometers, especially those used to measure high temperatures.
Mercury is rare in Victoria. Native mercury (Hg) is found as globules in alluvial deposits and in cinnabar (HgS) in altered slate near Jamieson. Cinnabar is a minor accessory mineral at Bullumwaal which is located within the Lower Devonian Buchan rift.
