An Assessment of Primary and Secondary Mercury Supplies in Mexico

Description

The objectives of this report are to estimate the supplies of primary and secondary mercury in Mexico that could be generated from different sources; to assess if extraction of identified mercury reserves would be both economically and technologically feasible; and to analyze the potential for Mexico to become an unintended but significant source of global mercury supply following the implementation of elemental mercury bans in the United States in 2013 and in the European Union in 2011.
