This Bureau of Mines publication, Information Circular 8517, was released in 1971. Since that time, changes in Federal regulations have made it possible for individuals to purchase, hold, sell, and otherwise deal with gold. Also, please note that mercury has been identified as a hazardous substance and should only be used under controlled conditions and not released into the environment.
