the only "huge" legal demands I am aware of is light bulbs industries and gold mining, and both are in need for extremely clean Hg, for obvious reasons.
If you want to separate mercury from silver, one method is to directly heat it. I have heard of someone doing this to extract mercury...
Mercury is commonly purified by distillation. Or at least it was back in early nineties when I worked with electrochemists using mercury electrodes.
If you don't know how, and if you don't have equipment - no doubt about it. But we are talking about a university lab, with a trained technician working in a room that was not used for anything else.
Apologies if you know already, otherwise googling the origins of the phrase "mad as a hatter" might be fun..
