A gold mine with two pits, Santa Rosa and Alto de la Mina.

Owned by Golden Phoenix.

Below is an observation written by Stephen Turner in 2012:

"I visited this gold mine in Panama in 2000. There is not much published mineralogical information on the mine/district. Congratulations on your collectible specimen - I didn't find anything worth keeping in my short visit. The mine was operated, not very successfully, by Greenstone Resources, which is now defunct. The project is currently held by Golden Phoenix Minerals (www.golden-phoenix.com), and their website has a lot of information, especially if you look up their 43-101 report, but probably not much mineralogical. I have attached a few extracts from my report below:

Santa Rosa comprises structurally-controlled, low-sulfidation veins and stockwork, silicified hydrothermal breccias and stratigraphic-controlled replacements in a volcaniclastic/sedimentary sequence. Gold mineralization is associated with quartz veins and stockwork and is also disseminated in the carbonaceous sedimentary to volcaniclastic rocks. The mineralization is mixed oxide/sulfide and in part refractory with the Au apparently encapsulated in pyrite. The depth of oxidation averages about 20 m. At the Alta de la Mina pit mineralization is associated with a NW-trending fault which hosts a basaltic dike and a silicified hydrothermal breccia. Marginal wallrocks in the andesitic flows have stockwork quartz - calcite - sulfide veins. In the main Santa Rosa pit A the gold zone is more tabular, occurring at the almost horizontal contact of the bedded volcaniclastic sequence with overlying andesitic flows.

Pyrite is the most abundant sulfide mineral with lesser marcasite, arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite recorded. Gangue minerals include quartz, calcite, adularia and minor barite. Given the silver content, I would expect some silver minerals are present."
