Abstract

The main regularities of location of mercury-bearing gas and oil deposits are discussed. The mantle source of mercury in these deposits is debated. Correlative relations of mercury with other elements are described. Some evaluation examples of reserves of mercury in gas and oil deposits with high mercury content are given. Examples of regional and local prognosis of mercury-bearing deposits are shown.
