"Quicksilver Mine is the best mine in Dawnstar, and you can tell those Iron-Breaker miners I said so."

Quicksilver Mine is located in the town of Dawnstar, in the western part of the town near the water and the dock. It has five quicksilver ore veins. There are a few non-hostile miners working the quicksilver ore inside. A smelter is located outside by the entrance to the mine and many pickaxes are scattered throughout the mine.
