Ancient mercury mine.
Collected here a few years back, the most productive areas are in the back on the boulders up the slope. Found fine calomel and mercury specimens, still can find fine pieces contrary to what others claim, just have to break the larger boulders to find the nicest pieces! (Comment by Michael Lambert II).
