, Mina las Hundidas, Palmarejo, Mun. de Chínipas, Chihuahua, Mexico


The Palmarejo Mine is located in Northern Mexico in the municipality of Chínipas within the State of Chihuahua. It is a chapter in a long history of gold and silver mining in the Sierra Madre Occidental silver-gold belt. The mine consists of open pit and underground operations. Since 2009, the mine has been owned by the precious metals company Coeur, which owns several precious metal mines around the world. The Palmarejo Mine is part of a silver-gold mining complex that includes the neighboring Guadalupe and Independencia mines. There is a processing facility on site that produces product known as doré, which is a semi-pure alloy of gold or silver. Doré bars are taken elsewhere for refinement. The deposits are classified as epithermal and are hosted in veins, breccias, and fractures. The locality has gained significance to mineral collectors because of its twinned and multigenerational calcite specimens.
