Mercury is an element, and as such appears naturally in our environment.  In normal conditions it exists in a liquid state, but at a temperature of about 674.1°F (357ºC) – the “boiling point” – it turns to a gaseous form and can be released into the atmosphere.  During mining processes, the mercury is removed from the earth along with the desired ore.  When the material being mined is processed to remove the desired materials or utilized as a fuel in cases such as coal, one of the potential byproducts is the mercury emissions.
