ADL: How should I prepare the Ligand PDBQT file with ADT for a single metal ion?

Dear ADT developers and Dockers,
I have been trying to use ADT and Autodock to dock a single metal ion (mecury ion) in the active site of a protein. However, I get lots of errors from ADT when I try to enter the mecury ion as a ligand in PDB format. I am guessing this is because ADT expects to find some bonds in the ligand. How should I prepare the Ligand PDBQT file with ADT for a single metal ion? Is it possible to dock a single metal ion using Autodock?
Does anyone in the comunity have experience in this situation?
I would be very grateful if anyone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
